Dear Vanessa.

 

 

 

Did you know that I love you? Oh yeah, more than the world. Did you know that I still can’t believe how a guy like me made you his girl? No I bet you don’t and probably never will. You probably don’t even want to read this but it gives me time to kill. I thought I’d put my heart into this letter just to show you how much I care. Because despite how I act in front of everyone, keeping all of this inside me is something I can’t bear. You’re the only girl I love, the only girl I want to love until I die. I can’t even help that I fall deeper in love with you as the days roll by. The shyness you have for the world, the courage you have against it, the enigmatic sea of blue in your eyes. The walks through the park, the comfort of knowing your fingers are interlocked with mine, the days we stare looking at the skies. Falling in love isn’t something to happen once with me, it happens every moment we spend together. And despite what anyone says, I just want to be with you forever. I want you to be the mother of my kids, the reason why I wake up, to be my first and only wife. It breaks my heart that I know that you want such a different life… You want to be adventurous, explore the world, and be care free. You only stay with me because I give you the attention you seek and it makes everyone jealous to see. You don’t really care about me, only what I give you. I hate when it’s so obvious to see but I know that I won’t try for anything new. I’m endlessly pleading for you to try; just for once can you give it your all? I know I plead in vain because no matter how bad things get, I’ll just continue to fall. Loving you is like an addiction that can’t be treated or healed; only fate can break me from this spell and it looks like my fate is sealed. So here’s one last effort from me to see how you can stay mine. What do I need to do, what can I change, is there somewhere that you can draw the line? I know you can do so much better but I can treat you better than anyone, so please be here for me to keep. No matter how many times you destroy my heart I won’t give up, but I’ll end this letter hoping you keep faith and take one last leap. Don’t do it for me, do it for yourself, do it for your heart. Give in to this love and I promise I’ll love you till death do us part.
