(This is a letter to myself, my much younger self)

How can you proclaim
of something that has been
to your very heart?
To be relevant is your bliss
when you are anything but
the match of his coexistence,
anything but common-
You spill over
from a single drop
of misconstrued
after you catch a glance
from the one
you ever so,
When those three words
never exhaled from his
Never entered his

    Such a great point to make...we can feel ten feet tall in our minds, naivety pumping up our chest. But that one humbling heartbreak makes us feel so much more mortally vulnerable. Nice job darlin! Much love, Steve

    This is beautifully written straight from your soul. It is so hard sometimes to address ourselves you do it so well and make it seem so easy. "A single drop of misconstrued charm" wow. Nice writing. Smiles from Lolita
