My Dear friend,

clearly you recognised that I haven't spoke out about your poem. That of course has a reason. Even though I love your work this one isn't one of my favourites. You just to be such an amazing writer! But I don't have to say anything good about what you just wrote. But that also doesn't me that I am not proud of you! You haven't been writing for so long and now you did. That's amazing my love! But still the reason why you haven't been writing is still present.

You lost your voice, your tune.

The words your writing didn't sound like you and they still don't. Yes your poem discribes the feeling perfect. But it doesn't sound like it was written by you.

It sounds like one of these people, whose books we read in the German lessons wrote it.


You just to have your own tune, your own voice, your own words. But now it's just a copie of someone else.

I hate to be the one who tells you all that. But I can't lie to a friend! She is right it sounds exactly like Goethe has written it.

Please don't stop writing even though this sounds like you should! I don't want that! I want you to find your own tune maybe a even better one then before. Maybe this means you first have to write like sombody else. I hope you get your tune back, because it used to be exactly like you. Strong, independent, beautiful and most importantly honest!!!

I am think about you as I am writing.

-your friend the writer
