Dear Future Love,
I’m so glad that it took all this time to meet. People would say that our joining was unnecessarily prolonged; I however would disagree. This time a part grew me into the woman I am today. My love for you transcends time and space because I was given the time and space to reflect on the importance of self. I’ve grown in more ways that one, and I know you have as well. My heart is unequivocally yours for the taking. But, I’ve learned that should you squander this gift, I would soldier on. Simply because it is life.
I will keep your heart safe. I will love you unconditionally, and I pray you do the same. We will travel, talk about family, start on our own. We will ignore the naysayers, and revel in the fact that we trusted each other from the beginning. I write this with a smile knowing that I am close to you, and you are close to me. I wonder how the universe is constructing our first meeting, and whether or not we will have a stereotypical romantic scene straight from a movie, or I’ll hate your guts.
It will be glorious.
To Whom It May Concern:
Hello. You don’t know me. You probably never will. But I know you. Well, I think I know you. I don’t actually know your name, but If I’m lucky I will one day. Or maybe not. Maybe you’re something I’m not supposed to have. You see, I’ve been watching you from afar. Everyday I watch you sit in a corner. Every evening I see you order your drink. What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What are your plans? These are some of the questions I want to ask you. But I never do.
I sit in silence, contemplating the different conversations we’d have. We’d disagree on politics, have common interest in food. You would be shocked I enjoy sports, and I’d be in awe that you admire Jane Austen’s hidden messages in all of her books.
You’d want to travel, as much as I do. I would want to discover the meaning of life; You would want to help me.
You could tell me to get lost; You could laugh in my face. Whatever the outcome I’ll never know. If this letter reaches you, I just wanted you to know that you are wanted,
God, you were desired,
And you were something I rewarded myself with frequently.
A Lover Of You.
I love you,
I always will.
You reminded me,
to be myself.
You told me that I could do anything,
And I believed it.
They tell you what you want to hear;
But you never did.
You’ve always kept your word.
You’ve told me in confidence that you felt trapped.
You told me that the world was closing in on you,
And you needed a place to be free.
I now know what you mean.
Now I know what it means.
