Love Letters

I write these words to you, because you are the dream I never want to end.

The emptiness I once felt, is gone because of your smile.
Late night whispers gave way to  late nights spent in each other’s arms.

I write these words to you, because your soul is beautiful.
This ugly thankless world, made better simply because you are in it.

The sound of your laugh and the way your eyes dance in the moonlight, have shaken me to my core.

I write these words because I’m afraid to say them to you.
Afraid of the sting of rejection.
Afraid my love is unrequited.
The fear in my bones is far too strong.

I don’t want you to disappear, like a wisp of smoke, too delicate for air.

So I’ll keep these letters, until I’m bold enough to share them with you.
Bold enough to give you my soul.
