Love Letters

I write this letter as not just recognition, but profound appreciation and never ending devotion to the woman I love. I often ask myself what I’ve done to deserve such an amazing woman; or if I deserve her at all. For you see, there are many different types of relationships in this world, mother and child, father and son, lifelong best friends, but in this letter I reflect on the greatest relationship of all, that of a man and a good woman. A good woman inspires you. She inspires you to be a better person tomorrow than you are today. She makes you feel like you matter, like you can make a difference in the world. She inspires your every passion and idea because she knows that those dreams created the man she loves today. A good woman is ambitious. She does not ride on your coattails...

Thank you. I can assure you that it did not always start off as a thank you. I have never met you, but for a long time I resented you. Every time I would hear your name, or stories about your time together, I resented you. I resented that his first kiss will always belong to you. Or that the first hand he ever held was yours. I resented that the first true feelings he has ever had for another girl, was for you. I resented the fact that he worked so hard to be with you. And I resented that he fought for you. I resented that you got to know and understand his gentle and kind heart before me. I resented the fact that you experienced how tender and loving he is towards the people he cares about. I resented that you once were the receiver of his beautiful good morning messages....

I have known you for almost four years and yet I’ve so long until I may feel worthy enough to speak to you. The amount of times we have spoken I can count on one hand as there are more fingers then I have conversations with you. I remember my first time speaking to you and yet none of will count as a conversation as it has always lasted around a few mere seconds. It was my freshman year of high school in Mr. Barringers class. I remember having seen you first as I walked into class and you were laughing, it was the most amazing laugh I’ve ever witnessed. The way your laugh seemed to echo through the room as if to say that yes it was you that was so happy, that it was you that would change my world for the better. As the days went by I was falling deeper and deeper for you. As I had spent...

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't expect anything grand to happen on this trip. To me it was just another family vacation that I was to go on, and it just so happened that my older brother (by ten years) was bringing his friend. I was 18 and you were 24, but at that particular moment in our lives 6 years to me felt like infinity. You were older, handsome, experienced, and a force to be wrecking with. That's why I didn't catch on that fast when I caught you staring at me in the airport while I bought fruit. It wasn't a huge deal, I just looked over and you were staring at me, not even looking the least bit embarrassed. I didn't think anything of it at the time because what would you want with me? In my mind we were worlds apart. You must've been looking at the imperfections on my...

That man… A man who will never get tired of me. Who will listen to my endless thoughts, and who will never get tired of my undying words. And who will never get tired to hear my dramas in life and my rants. He will listen to me attentively as i speak. He will look at me in the eyes and sees every word came from my soul and heart. A man who will be there for me as i cry when i feel so weak and lend me his shoulder and wipe away my tears. A man who’s not going to stand as an adviser, an instructor but a best friend, a partner of mine. A man who will tell me what’s right and what i need to do and who will scold me once I've done something wrong and hug me after and tell me that he’s proud of me for standing still and fought for what i want. A man who understands me, the nature of us...

I don't even know where to begin, we've basically been through it all together. You were my best friend, you meant the world to me. But, of course. I had a boyfriend and you had a girlfriend, whom we're both still with today. I'd do anything for you and you knew it. The same to you as with me. We talked for hours on end, you introduced me to all your friends and we would stay up late in a group chat sending photo shopped pictures of ourselves on dragons. You had a huge ass traffic light you somehow had and your friend had a traffic cone. You guys would hide them in your closets and say it was a forbidden love because she was illegal. You loved to make me happy, you saved my life multiple times and hated to see me sad. ...but the sad thing is, I never met you in those 3...

This is what you don't understand. Maybe it's because I've never told you, maybe it's because you just don't know. Maybe, as smart as you are, you've never noticed how my entire face radiates with sunshine when I am with you. My heart starts glowing. My eyes start twinkling. When I look at you, I'm looking at my entire world. Frequently, you say things like "I just want someone who cares about me as much as I care about them." I can't explain how offensive that is to me. It feels like a slap across the face. No one loves you as much as I love you. You could search for a thousand years and you wouldn't find a girl who cares about you, loves you and cherishes you more than I do. Of course, that probably makes you think of Her. So, in that regard, I am sorry to break this to you...

In my 24 years of life I have been in love. Many different times in fact. I have been in such deep love that I didn't even know I was in love until years later. I have been in dramatic love, where I am so overwhelmed with feelings of satisfaction that nothing else matters. I have been in a confusion of love, where I can't fully understand why I am loving, I just am. I have been in masked love, love that I wish had been real, but couldn't possibly have been. Finally, I am in unconditional love. I have been ripped apart, and sewn back together in so many ways. But a love that has no limits is nothing I ever imagined it would be. The love that I'm afraid to leave because if I did, it would be the end. The love that has struck me down and lifted me up enough times for me to know that it's...

Dear Busy Boyfriend, Let me start by appreciating you, for all your hardworking and determined self. Your efforts towards your work and simultaneously towards our relationship have been tremendous. I understand your dedication towards your work and also the stress that it comes with, however, I am a left in an ambiguous state of mind. To be honest I am not sure whether o fight for your attention or to let you work even when I know your work would win all your attention. I do crave for your attention, but I don’t want your work to be affected because of that. But it does hurt to be sidetracked as your second love. I know you are working hard towards your future (probably ours). If you keep working such long hours perhaps we could lose the build-up of our love-story. Whenever I call...

An open letter to a broken girl... The truth is when I first met you I was worried about falling in love with you. The way you are frightened by something you don’t fully understand, so powerful yet so mysterious. I was drawn in by your past, not afraid of it. I loved you because of your scars, inside and out, not despite them. I fell for you too quick to act on my fear, too quick to pull away, too quick to find a girl without a past, without anxiety, a girl who was whole. But you didn’t give me time. You didn’t give me a second to breathe. I drowned in you, like an ocean I could not see the bottom or the horizon, and it was beautiful. You pulled me in without any effort, and my worry quickly turned into surprise. How could a girl so broken love me so wholly? How could someone who has...
