My darling Marie,

It has been what seems like an eternity since I last held you in my arms. Every day is a struggle filled with longing and anguish. So long has it been since I have seen your face, it’s like the sun no longer shines anymore. Not a day goes by that I do not regret what I did. I only hope you can forgive me, for the fool I was.

 

I was but a mortal man, filled with mortal hopes and ideas far beyond my reach. I sort power, immortality, blindly believing these would bring me happiness. I was so blinded by my ambition, drunk with power, I could not see that I already had the most precious thing in the world, the only happiness I would ever need; I had you. Now I have all the power anyone could ever want, all the riches I could ever desire, but for what price?

 

These fickle humans mock me. If only they knew what I knew, could see the horrors I have seen. They think they know love, when really they know nothing of it. They know nothing of pain, heartache or longing, not like I do. I have longed for you, craved for your touch since the moment I made that awful deal. Every day since is agony, every moment cuts into me like a knife, forever reminding me the price of eternal power.

You know darling, I have tried a millions times to forget you, to move on and start over, but a million times I have failed. All other women are paled compared to what I felt with you. They don’t look like you, feel like you, smell like you; to be honest they just can’t fill the gap in me that is you. I just wish I could have known the consequences my actions would bring.

 

These chains they sit on my wrist day in and day out, disguised as bangles. They mock me, taunt me; forever a reminder that I am a prisoner due to my foolishness. Day after day I sit and wait. I wait for my next master to come and find me. Then I am bound to them, forced to grant 3 wishes of their desire. My darling, I have granted a thousand and one wishes and I have watched as a thousand and one wishes have caused despair.

My darling, if I had but one wish, I would wish to end this suffering, leave this lonely prison, flee from this cursed land where happiness can only be bought and love is a mere fantasy of fiction. I would give all my power, every single bit of it, just to be free and finally see you again, in the next world, where we would be free to be together forever and eternally. But I know this is just wishful thinking.

 

I'm so sorry, my love, my angel, my darling.

 I love you, for forever and a day.
