Letters to a Friend

Postby Brave Archer » Sun Aug 13, 2006 7:15 pm

This is a letter i'd written some time ago for someone and felt it was better that i not give it to her.

I look'd at this page a few minutes before I began to write, I won't lie and say it's been a while since i've written a letter-- still there is a newness to it that is refreshing. I thought of you almost all of yesterday and even though I have no complaints I felt that I should do something so i'd be able to focus my mind on other things. I won't speak on what I thought, mostly ramblings, but here I am, nonetheless, still, writing you a letter for fear that the conclusions my mind came up with may not come from my mouth the same. Getting to know you has been incredible for me and I only pray that in my desires to set to know you better I don't become a nuisance. There is a possibility of you reading this letter a feeling that this is too soon, but this is only an attempt to get you to realise that I do like you and I do pray that you see enough in me to want to bring a little of your time my way.

There was more to this letter but I cut it short, feel free to do as my signature say's.
Why don't you really tell me how you feel!

The sincerity and restraint are too much for this ridiculously romantic, over wistful heart of mine to take...Brave Archer! How touchingly above reproach and stunningly innocent in intent.


I love it.

I have many such letters but they are all far too overwrought and terrifyingly passionate to ever show to anyone else :(

I admire your candour Brave Archer.

I know myself to my cost that it is much easier to write how you really feel than to tell someone face-to-face :?
