    I think I'm going to write a letter to a

    stranger everyday, in order to keep my sanity. I really like reading letters written to a stranger because you know nothing really about that person until what they written in the letter, I prefer the hand written versions because I love looking at handwriting and I get all...

    Letter You'll Never Get To Read...

    I wrote you a letter after you'd gone, but you won't be able to get it. I just needed to tell you what I never could. I wanted to say sorry for not spending as much time with you as I could. I needed to tell you just how much you meant to me, but I never did. I didn't tell you...

    Letter to My Youngest Child

      June 10, 2009 Winter Each day that passes as you grow I wonder how you are. I have wondered about you for a while now and wish I was with you as you grew. I know that you were very young when all this separation occurred. I feel guilty for not spending more time with...

    Many Letters That I Didn't Send

    I've written you many letters I didn't send in the past few years that we haven't been in touch in any way. For catharsis mostly... if I could not reach out and send you one last letter, I need to at least write one that I can honestly feel is all I have to say to you. I need to...

    To Apologize

    I wrote you a letter to tell you I'm sorry: for the scar on your arm, but even more so for the scar on your heart. I wrote to tell you how much I miss you, love you, cry for the agony I know you're going through. Never sent, I found the letter neatly folded...

    Jarid, Today makes 9 month since we've been married but it also makes 5 months since you've left my life. You left me crumbled and heart broken. We fussed till we were blue in the face. We got mad and said thing we didn't mean to say but in the end it didn't matter. You made up...

    Dear stranger, You can respond to this

    if you wish, if not I'm okay with that. I've never really thought that you can judge me because you don't know who I am, you don't know I look like. I have this fear of disappointing people, I have a fear of not everyone liking me and failing classes - I don't know if this...

    From Me To You

    You, I hope that someday you can see me in the same light that is truly me. I have on many occasions, hurt you. I was blinded by the warmth of your love and couldn’t see you. It was reassuring to a fault. It let me fall deeper in love with you while you fell away. My need for...

    and tell you how much you mean to me.  It's funny, the circumstances under which me met were not ideal, and still you became a friend.  You opened up and shared your true self with me, and you allowed me to see all of you not just the good parts.  You trusted me...

    I wrote you a letter and poured out my heart. You didn't even answer me and it kinda broke my heart. It's my fault I should've known from the start that you didn't care about my heart. You always say you're blunt and say what's on your mind but yet not a word all this time. I...

    Little Love Notes

    I could write to you if you like. Little love notes would greet you at every turn. Paper worn down soft like summer skin. I could profess the feelings verbally, or in my hitched handwriting. I could leave a hundred notes secreted away in your room. Hidden in your socks. The...
