Love Letters

Everyone has their firsts in everything. In my case you were my first in a lot of things. First guy best friend, first love, first kiss, and the list goes on, including my first heartache, but NOT my first hearbreak. You did, however, turn out to be the first guy to use me and exhaust me in all ways possible. Let me remind you of how our story started and, eventually, ended. ______________________________________________________ I was a girl who was sheltered by my strict and grade-conscious parents with a traditional culture, and was enrolled in an all-girl school since nursery. With those in mind, some may think that I'm a girl who's probably longing for a guy's touch, or even just companionship. However, it's the contrary. I lived my life not caring about boys. I...

"We had a good run". At least that's the cliche used for things that meet an untimely end for whatever reason. You might be wondering why I did it. Why I turned away from you that last time? Why I finally walked away and closed the door on "you and I" if I still loved you? After all, there was a point when we were happy. So I have to ask myself the same question ... why did I? It was never a secret to anyone, especially not to you, how much I adored you. You often held the title of "man candy Monday" on all my social media accounts. I boasted about you and I in photos I tagged you in almost every other day on Facebook. There was the time I left you a scavenger hunt all over your condo that led to a scrapbook I made you amongst other gifts. There was the time I surprised you...

(Love Is Love) I just want to hold you at night. I wanna cuddle with you at night. I wanna tell you how perfect you are, and how much I love you. I wanna kiss your cheek and see you smile. I wanna watch you laugh and see you just enjoy your self. I can't even explain how i want to hold your hand and show you to the world. I want to scream to the world that you are mine. I wanna see you wear your cute little outfits, I wanna see you do the things you love, I just want to see you live because dear lord you are perfect. I wanna see you take off your make up, Because you look so much better without make up, and you still protest. I wanna see you wear my cloths and borrow my jewelry. I wanna see you get over excited over tiny things. I wanna see you put your heart and soul into...

Graham, I came in with my family today for lunch as we were on our way home from a trip. You called the next party to order and I walked up to the counter and I saw your eyes get wide and you smiled at me. I noticed that your name tag said, "Graham" and underneath, "In training". You had to ask a co-worker how to put in a water for a meal, and then forgot what my order was and had to ask me again. You kept getting flustered (as most first-time employees do), but it was actually pretty cute. As I try desparetly not to make this sound like a Missed Connection on Craigslist, there was something there. And while I won't ever see you again, seeing as how I call the state above you my home, I just thought I'd let you know that althought I was exhausted and probably looked really irritated, I...

Dear Kelly, I am writing to you publicly, to tell you how sorry I am for the recent loss of your boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, and the excessive attack you received via social media from people who disapproved of your role as a nyatsi (the other woman). You don’t deserve all those harsh words, my dear. You are very talented, lovely, beautiful and sometimes, God-loving young woman. I would also like to apologise for the way men have used you over the years. I know you desire to get married, but as it is, you are still single. The result of some men’s dishonestly in your relationship with them is evident in your status as a single mother of two lovely kids; one with a father in prison and the other with a late father. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. You don’t deserve all this from...

I'm bothered and a bit hurt seeing those posts that your other friends tagged you, because the photos and posts that I tagged you were nowhere to be found. It might be technical but why can't I see even just one. It also hurts to be "seenzoned" and "inboxzoned". Yes I know you are busy living your life, but we made a promise that however busy we are we wouldn't forget about communication. With those messages I sent you didn't even say hi, you just left it unopened. Yes, the thought of seeing you after a long time excites me, but when that time comes excitement was overpowered by awkwardness. It seem there's an invisible wall between us. Despite our differences I'm still hoping that we could patch things up and update the stuff that stand still... For now I'm not sure what...

Dear Future Husband, Well, if I marry you there is obviously something I saw in you but are you the way I will always imagine a guy? My perfect husband (so darling listen up XD) will have my sense of humor. He will also know when I'm being sarcastic and when I'm not. This guy will be dominate but not rudely. He'll know I'm shy and not very comfortable around people I'm not extremely close too (meaning he won't pressure me into meeting his colleagues at maybe a dinner party). He'll be a bit old fashioned by open and holding the door for me upon entry and exit. He'd always open the car door for me and close it after I get in. He's hold out my coat for me to put it on. But honey, I'd never take it for granted. To many people nowadays would but if I had that, I'd do my best to be that...

Dear Women: We hope this letter finds you held securely by the arms of true Love. Love is a beautiful thing. Yet, we hope you realize how difficult it was for the man in your life to fall in Love with you and quite possibly, how difficult it is for him to be in Love with you. Love is difficult for us men. Why? Well, to be honest, Love scares us. We confess it here and now, we men are afraid of Love. We are especially afraid that we will leap into the abyss of Love first but you will never join us. That we will fall blindly into Love and you will not be there to catch us, to guide us. Most importantly, we fear giving up control. We fear losing ourselves in an emotion we do not fully understand. An emotion that controls us rather than us controlling it. No man wants to feel like he is...

Hey, I was wondering when will we ever meet? I mean, its too early to ask for things like that bc im just 14. You know, maybe weve passed by each other once and we just havent had a connection that time. If one day our love story begins i would want to spend it with you every single part of it.

Dear Yvonne Craig, Yesterday morning I woke up to a very dank and dark day. The rain was pouring in and as I looked out the window I couldn’t muster up any motivation except to haul myself out to the living room and find something rather light and harmless to watch on the television. I was rather amused to find that one of your old films, “Ski Party”, was on television. Now I have to admit that I have a real soft spot for the sixties teen comedies of Frankie Avalon so “Ski Party” was just the remedy that the doctor ordered for a dreary morning. Now “Ski Party” is no “Battleship Potemkin”. Hell, it’s not even “Beach Blanket Bingo” for that matter, but for that hour and a half that I sat watching it I felt it was the best thing in the world. However,as I watched the cross-dressing antics...
