February brings thoughts of love… I first posted this musing on love letters in July but it is well worth revisiting.
My brother Val always says “love isn’t a physical thing. It is a meeting of souls. Be it friendship or romantic lovers, it is something we can write about and dream about, but we can never truly explain or define it.”
The Art of Writing Love Letters is Alive and Well (even for Zombies & Ghosts)
The most popular post on this blog is “How to respond to a love letter.” Really. Out of the zillion or so things I’ve written on just about every subject everything always circles around back to LOVE.
That is proof that the art of letter writing is not completely dead (YES – real scientific proof) AND romance is still alive and well.
Everyone writes love letters. And that means YOU. Below are some examples to inspire you and get you going.
For Modern Royalty
Let me undress you my love and rid you of your fashionable dress. Let me unroll your stockings one by one. Let me slip off your panties and bra so carefully. And when you’re all mine naked and beautiful, let me cover you with frumpy pastel colored grandma clothing and ugly hats forever.
Let me run my hands along your bare skin and feel the fur grow under my fingers. Run in the woods with me my love and let me hear your howl in the moonlight. Be the father of my cubs and the alpha of my pack. Your large paws and dark eyes excite me. I sniff you and your scent intoxicates me. Both the man and beast in you make me love you even more.
Know that I love you for more than just your brains. When I first saw you staggering across the street, the wild look in your one remaining eye, the slight smile, the slow groan, the matted hair and I knew you were the girl for me.
I will be with you even when we fall apart and our body parts trail behind us…and there is nothing left except our love.
In the shadows you bring dark light and the slow beating of your heart. I live for your cool touch, your lips on my neck, fangs lightly teasing me. You’re my heart and soul. You are my shadow. You are my love. You are the one I will spend centuries with sharing wine and blood and passion.
For Regular Humans
You’re cute. I like being with you. I love you. xoxoxoxox. I can’t get enough of you. Light my fire or even my BBQ Grill – I’m easy. Love you sweetie pie!
In life love was just a dream like mist or a phantom.
Now it is real even though nothing else is.
Through the centuries we drifted,
Only to meet at night, haunting the truth and reality of life,
To find love in death and tragedy,
And hope that will never make sense,
But it is ours and ours alone.
You haunt me to my very soul,
The spirit of our love lives anew.
So get out your pen, your pad, your smart phone, your crayon or pencil and write a letter to the one you love.
