Frank's Letter. Enjoy.
I guess if you're reading this then I'm dead and have gone down as the sexiest guitarist ever right?
Okay, Probably not but a man can dream right?
Well, this is a confessions letter right? So I've gotta confess my sins like a good old catholic boy. Good job I'm not of them then. But then again you all do have the right to know about the Frank behind the Iero, Which is pronounced 'Eye-Year-Ro' for all of you douchebags who can't be arsed to learn how to say my last names.right?
Probably not y'know but theres always hope!
I hope you laughed at that joke. Infact, I hope you've laughed and you keep laughing through this letter. This how I want you all to remember me. I want to be remembered as the funny rythmic guitarist for My Chemical Romance. Not just Frank Iero. I wanted to make a difference and I hope that in my life time I have.
Truth is, I'm scared of alot of things. Spiders of course but mostly dying and not being remembered.
I guess that counts as a confession so... Lets get on with it.
I wanted to call Cherry and Lily, Batman and Robin if they were a boy and girl. I thought it would be rather hilarious. Jamia on the other hand thought it would be stupid. But I still love my Jamia.
Remember when I came into band practise with dick shaped sunburn on my butt? Well, remember that me and Bob stayed behind to remix the last track of The Black Parade? Remember Bob's fear of cameras? Yeah I think we all do... Ha!
Well, I took a pic of Bob and he punched he in the face. Knocked me out cold. And before you start killing Bob remember, I FOUND IT HILARIOUS XD. Anywho, he dragged me outside in the like 50 degree heat and covered my whole body in suntan lotion... accept for a dick shaped mark on my butt.
Bob, if your here, You're one hilarious son of a bitch.
Another confession of mine is that I know Mikey's secret. Wanna know? Oh I know you guys do! (and i can sense that Mikey is absoulutely shitting himself right now)
Well, In this letter there is a photo. It is the only copy of this photo in existence. Rip it and you die. Look at the photo. Put in on a big screen or something like that.
It's a photo of Mikey in drag. Wanna know the funniest thing? It wasn't even a dare! I just came out of the bathroom one day and saw him lying there on his sofa wearing platform boots and a skirt. I swear I could see his bulge...and it was a little bit too excited if you know what I mean.
Sorry Mikes but the truth had to be told.
I think maybe I should now type a few goodbyes to people. If I don't do it now I'll regret it for sure. And I'm worried that I won't be able too before I pass...
Cherry and Lily- Be good girls for mommy and know that I'll always love you. I don't care what you guys choose to do with your lifes, as long as it makes you both happy. Remember, Even though you guys are twins, It doesn't mean you have to be exactly the same. Find yourself and be your own person. And don't take anyones bullcrap cause I'll beat their asses down when they die, Don't you worry about that. And also don't worry about growing up and not really growing height wise. If your short, be happy. It means you can get kiddie meals right up until your 19. See, not that bad huh? Love you both, My angels. xo
Jamia- What else can I say other than, I Love You. I really do Jamia. I'm so happy I got to spend my life with you. Every day with you has been a blessing. Keep our girls on the path of awesomeness and look after our dogs. I know you will. Love you Hun. Also, Jamia... After my death I want you to find someone else. Someone better. Someone who can be a father. A good clean father. One who doesn't smoke or drink. I know you'll find someone. Love you Jammy.
Ray- I love your 'Fro. Never change it. Also, Great idea this. I feel alot better as a person by writing this. Sounds cheesy right? Well, I'm a cheesy guy. You were always the better guitar player. I'm serious. You were just amazing! No matter how many times you'd compliment me by saying 'Well done bro' and that, I never believed you. Not for one moment. Keep on rocking Ray and I want you to have my guitar. Please.
Mikey- Don't cry. Not that you will anyway, it's just you always seem to be the most emotional of us all. Well, I just wanna say thanks. Thanks for being there. Thanks for supporting me and most importantly, Thanks for being a friend. You were the best friend I could always trust. Thanks.
Bob- I cried y'know, When you left. I didn't speak to anyone for ages. Probably sounds childish now. Just know that I missed you. I never wanted you to go, Heck, I nearly left the minute I heard you'd packed your bags. Maybe I overreacted, Maybe I didn't. All I know is that I missed you. I hope you missed me too Bob. I really do.
LynZ- Bandits grown up so much since I've seen her last. She looks just like you and Gee. More like you I'd say. (I guess thats way B's so pretty XD). I just wanted to say thanks LynZ. You've been a friend to me and Jamia for so long. We love ya LynZ. I hope your life turns out fantastic. You deserve it.
Alicia- LICI!!! Never thought I'd be writing one of these anytime soon did ya. We've know eachother for a long time. Even before the days of MCR. I hope you and Mikey have a great life together and I wish you both all the happiness in the world. And remember, Just because you were popular and I wasn't doesn't mean you can throw food at me XD. And for those hearing this and think 'Wha?' We we're in high school together. Yeah. Suprising Right?!
And Finally, Geetard. Gerard, What can I say? You're my best friend, brother and bandmate. Heck, sometimes you're even like my mom. Theres... Theres not much I can say really, Other than thanks. With you I learnt to fly and fall. You're an amazing man Gerard. LynZ and Bandit are lucky to have you, As I am too. Goodbye Gerard.
Oh, Before I Forget.
I'm not sure how you'll all take this but I've been in love with someone for quite some time. He's just amazing. And yeah, the person is a 'He' and thats not just a typo. Get over it you homophobic bastards.
But I'm not gay... So it's hard to explain. Well, at least I don't think I am.
Truth be told, I'm thinking about this too much. And I've told you more than you need to know. So before I wrap up this secret confession I'll just say one more thing.
He is the most amazing man I have ever met and I think that we could have been something truly spectacular.
But the thing is, I don't love him like I did all those years ago. I've got a family now. A wife, two beautiful baby girls and a whole lot of dogs. (By the way Jamia, when I'm gone buy a poodle and call it Jeremy. Please.)
I'll always love him. Always.
Oh, and before I forget, his name was familar to all of you here. And now that I know that when this truth comes out, I'll be dead, I can proudly say: I LOVE GERARD ARTHUR WAY.
All My Love, I'm Watching You All From Heaven! (or hell. if thats the case i'll be digging a hole through the earths crust and carefully observing you from a far distance.)
P.S: Sorry I Never Told You Gee. It just would have been too painful to face rejection. I love you. But I guess I'm too late to tell ya.
