dear mr beautiful

(at home for the holidays i found this letter i wrote a while ago. i don't even remember who i wrote it to or when: i think its better that way)


Dear Mr Beautiful,
You are very charming. Smooth. Slippery. And I needed to be kissed like that. But its all over before it begins. Because you already made it very clear that you are in love with someone else, and that’s where I stand. And though I don’t feel it now, I can see things developing. I can see myself envisioning chilly nights with foreign dinners, listening to songs with your face in my head, picking out wine with your taste in mind. Because I can see you are dangerous. Meanwhile you’ll be writing postcards across the sea to a girl I’ll never be, while I look at the dent on my pillow. So let me save you some time, and save myself some money on lacy lingerie- because no matter what I wear I’m still me and no matter what you do I’ll blame myself.
Thanks anyway,
me

I have a shoe-box full of love-letters I wrote to a guy when I was sixteen. He never received even one of them. I'm a little bit braver now :)

Hope you had a wonderful new year miss Lucie.

love letters at 16 are always the best: so cute and everything is soooooooooo extreme!

(K- I have a secret-- if i were your bf i would have already read all those letters; I am much too snoopy)

This is wonderful. I should dig out all of my old stuff and yes so true how dramatic we all used to be. I miss that sometimes:)

Beautiful blog!!

i love these sorts of letters. i've had my share of finding the old ones in old notebooks or journals to whoever it was at the moment.... they are the best when you read them years later, and can't remember the specifics of the letter.

i love this one.
