Love Letters. 100 words to tell you that I love you

 

Darling,

I don't need one hundred words to tell you that I love you, but I need more than the three words it really takes. As whole as 'I love you' sounds, it just doesn't say enough. It doesn't say how I hunger for you, how I breath through you, how I smell what you smell, how I see the world through your eyes, how I hurt when you hurt, how I laugh with your smile, how my heart is shaped around yours. I need you to hear all this when I tell you that I love you.

Always,

E

Dearest,

I love you has changed its brilliance over time, has transformed itself from a flash of blinding light to a radiant sun to a sustained and unstoppable glow that never expires, a timeless ray that guides me through any night, any uncharted territory, any quest.

I love you is my lighthouse, I can't get lost while I love you like I do. Your light shines into me and I radiate your essence to find myself, see myself, understand myself through your eyes.

The brightness of loving you fills my soul, lights me up from the inside out.

Always,

E

 

I'm really sorry, babes, I don't know what I was thinking. Actually, I'm sure I wasn't thinking.

That bullshit about love meaning never having to say I'm sorry.... whoever came up with it didn't have the first clue about love. Love makes it unthinkable not to apologize if I'm the cause of your pain. I wish I never hurt you, but that's also bullshit because as much as I love you I'm imperfect, humanly so. How can I ever be sorry to have to tell you I'm sorry? How can love mean never to apologize when I hurt you?

E

 

At first I was afraid I was petrified, Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side... Remember that song? It takes a left turn while my life with you takes a right. After all these years, I feel I wouldn't survive without you. Maybe I could carry on, but I don't even want to consider the possibility. You've got the key to my heart and I can't think of ever changing that lock. If you threw away the key, I would survive, but it would take all the strength I have not to fall apart.

Besos,

E

Glad to hear she did!

Sorry I wrote your name wrongly - one of my sisters is called Eleanor, and it stuck in my head while I was typing.

No prob with the name, there, LG! I don't know what it is with this name of mine, the other day I also got called something else in a reply to a comment –seriously, maybe I need a radical name makeover! Laugh!

By far my favorite thing I've read in a long time...I couldn't put my finger on exactly what moved me, but I LOVE the purely poetic nature and how it meshed so well with your "no BS" way of speaking. I'm rather inspired...Thanks! :-)

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid Author

Wow, that's a major compliment, Chrissy! I'm grateful to you for having delivered it with such grace and generosity! Very happy that it inspired you! :-)

How I wish somebody would send me letters (okay, email is also good!) like these here! Like what they have said, the ones who got here before me (LOL), this hub is very inspiring. The narrative as poem as narrative is very creative - and clever. Thanks for the inspiration :D

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid Author

Hi Cris -- Glad I could inspire you BACK! :-)  I'm still dreamy touchy feely with all those wonderful kisses!

On poetry, I think this is the closest I can get to creating a poem, in English at any rate!

Nice words, Elena. Stuff straight from the heart. If I was on the other end of them I'd feel mighty humble.

Thanks, Anthony! For me feeling humble comes from having this love in my life :-)

I doubted you'd ever notice me, Christoph, the fact that you 'got' my letters has me swooning! I shall need the salts now!

Now that my little joke has run it's course, I wanted to come back and tell you that your letters are truly beautiful. Anyone would be blown away to receive such poetry. I'm sure she was!

She was, and THAT truly made me swoon :-*

Janetta wishes Elena would just mail her the darn things instead of writing a hub LOL I do love your letters E. For a AHEM non writer, you do have a way with words :)


Elena. profile image

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid Author

Elena is pleased by Janetta's comment. And Elena likes it when Janetta AHEMs. Now, some letters aren't meant to be mailed, but read out loud to one's lover's ears :-*

I am not sure there is something like love..

can any body get that here?

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid Author

With a name like yours, Faith, I'd expect you'd "believe" in love :-) But I'm not sure what you mean by "here". In this earth? In the web?

Thanks for the post. Unfortunately I can´t be together with the woman I love, cause I live in Germany and she lives in Canada. But I know we will be together in future and marry and have children. Michelle, I will love you forever. You are the woman of my dreams. I can´t be without You anymore!
