* WHAT LOVE LETTER?? *


Blog Posted:10/29/2012 2:43:00 PM


“I look down the tracks and see you coming --- and out of every haze & mist your darling trousers are hurrying to me.  Without you, dearest dearest I couldn’t see or hear or feel or think – or live – I love you and I’m never in all our lives going to let us be apart another night.  It’s like begging for mercy of a storm killing Beauty or growing old without you ---“

 

                                                                        Lover, Lover, Darling –Your Wife

(Excerpts from the letter of Zelda Fitzgerald to F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1920)

---------

“Please don’t be mad at me. I know we are only friends, but can’t we be friends and lovers too? Please don’t turn me away. When I hear your voice, see your face, feel your soft skin, I cry at the thought of losing you. Please, please, will you marry me? Say yes, and you will make me the happiest man in the world. Wear that red dress I love tonight if your answer is yes. I will see you at the park, okay? Please wear red!” ~ ( Anonymous, 2010)

 

when was the last time you wrote a love letter?...  on the other hand, when did you last receive an endearing note that made your heart skip or compelled you to sigh, cry and fly?...whooa,  then you must know the intensity and beauty of a romantic letter.

 

in this age of electronic mania and Hallmark craze, writing love letters has ceased to become an art...  your personal touch is diminished by the dependence on words that some writer composed and produced by a card manufacturer...  the person you are sending the card is receiving messages of your affection in words that you don’t own...  in a generic way, thousands of guys and gals of the global population have the same copy of that card... 

 

Ohh, this is a funny one!... read on!

 Dear Jessica,

“You’ve asked me to stop writing these letters. You’ve told me they will never change things between us. But I can’t, Jessica. I can’t just… let you go. Even Darth Vader, an evil Sith lord, couldn’t leave his son to die at the end of “Return of the Jedi”.

For you, Jessica, I would dive into the Sarlacc Pit of Tatooine (Luke's home planet)...(Even though in the Expanded Universe of the "Star Wars" novels, Fett eventually escapes, which creator George Lucas has accepted as official S-Dub cannon. But my simile still stands.)

Please, Jessica, give you and me a try - or as wise Jedi once said, "Try not..Do, or do not. There is no try." Come on, Jessica. Let's "do" it.

May the Force be with You,

Patrick (3rd row, History)

 

so, have you handwritten your feelings  to someone who deserves your private expressions that no other can ever duplicate?...like last week, 2 years ago, never?...

    I got a poem written by my Honey this past june for our anniversary--My husband doesn't write poetry, but he does support my dabbling in it. Anyway, it was sooo sweet of him to do and he did a pretty good job too. Before that the last Love letters I got from him were 20+ years ago when we were dating. LOL. :) Tanya

    Nearly 40 years since I wrote or received a love letter. Guess I am out of practice.

    Nette, this is great! Yes, all love letters have something unique and endearing about them...I once got a marriage proposal that went something like this.....Dearest Gwendolen, I spoke to my insurance company today and they said that if I were married, my rates would significantly drop!! Wanna get married? ........OMW!... Yep, they ARE ALL UNIQUE!! Cute posting. luv, gwendolen
