really caught my attention. If it has anything to do with love, I put on my brakes to read it!
I found your letter sweet, cautious, emotional, and heartfelt. I did find some suggestions for you, and I hope that they will help you out with letter writing. I have submitted a copy of your letter of how it would look in letter written form. Here are my suggestions for any changes that you might need to make; I only put the corrected versions in red.
You need to start it out in a letter form, addressing the recipient according to whom you are writing. For example: Dear Joseph,
You also need to have a signature at the bottom to indicate who it is from. Example: All my love and dedication to you always, Your Sugarplum
Nicknames are usually considered to be used in addressing and ending love letters to ones whom we love.
I’d always thought hearts were meant to be broken. At least, mine was, for it’s been broken more times than can be counted. When I first saw your shy face staring at me from across the room
on a moonless
night in January, my heart tugged me towards you, so desperate to believe you’d be the right one.
I stopped believing in “Mister Right,”
but I believed in love, even though my brain begged me not to fall, not to place another crack in my already bleeding heart. But my heart, my stubborn heart,
still beats no matter how many cracks it has in it. It begged me to believe that you were different, that you wouldn’t let me fall alone, that you’d be the person I needed to save myself.
So what else could I do? I had never been one for logic, and I’d
always been one to let my feelings lead the way, even though that always came back to haunt my darkest nightmares in the end. Right away, my cautiousness led me to curiosity
had to know more about you, had to know everything, even your past. Because
my heart told me to believe that if I could heal you, you could heal me.
I allowed my heart to believe in you
but held back, unsure of how this chapter would end, uncertain if my
taking the fall would lead to me bleeding on unfriendly
ground like before. So, I took the fall and I felt
more alive than I have ever
had before. Feeling
the rush of love across my body, and you by
my side, encouraging me to open up to you. For the first time in years, I wasn’t afraid to open up, although it took me a while to get used to the idea of being that vulnerable with someone. Someone
that I’d given my heart to
It gave me the sense of freedom, like you’d taken me on your wings and took me on
a journey that doesn’t yet have an ending. It
has been the best adventure I’ve taken so far, and you’ve been there every step of the way. It doesn’t take a scientist to notice how in love we are, how great we are together, but then again, I don’t believe even science can explain the connection between our souls and hearts.
Love isn’t something that
can be easily explained
, but soulmate love? That’s unexplainable, and we have that love, we’ve always had it, and we’ll never be able to give up something so rare and precious. People take love for granted, but I could never take your adoration for granted
because every day, something new and exciting comes out of it, and the next adventure is just around the corner.
All my love and dedication to you always, Your Sugarplum
I'm not sure how you feel about the changes, but it seems to have a better flow if you read it out loud. I hope this helps you. I find this a very heartfelt and endearing letter to your boyfriend. The art of letter writing is an act of love, friendship, courtesy, the art of words, and showing what is needed to convey to the recipient what is needed to say without interpretation.
I want to thank you for sharing it with me and asking me to review it. It was an honor to read it. I will catch you next time around.
P.S. I had a cat named "Comet" she is missed as well.
