Love Letter 1

Dear You,

I have spent my whole life feeling quite small on the inside and too big on the outside. I have loved those unworthy of its depths, but loved anyway because that is the type of person I am. I love wholly. I love without question. I just allow it to inhabit whatever dark corners of my heart it wants to. I have loved people before you, but differently. I will love others concurrently, not romantically, but as well. I love strangers on the street, old women with bright lipstick, and boys digging for change. I loved you before I met you. I will probably love you forever. I will love your shiny parts, and all of your shadows. I find myself wanting to tell you this, but I don’t want to scare you. Part of me feels like, you of all people, wouldn’t be scared at all. You’d welcome my love with open arms, and darling you have some long arms. One day.

Love, Me
