  • Love letter # 547 Lately – cannot say why – I have sensed you like the presence of weather. Close like the tropical night. I have dreamt of you fifteen times; and there we have danced, like we never did. You kissed me in these visions as I still wish you would. And when my…

  • Love letter # 994 I look into your blue distance, imagine the other side of your horizon, and I am transported. In your endless capacity I am contained; yet not restrained. Your tabula rasa is my where my story continues. With your quiet way you entice my language. For there are no anchors on the…

  • Love letter # 593 The story was intoxicating. The legend of us. The way we got together. Such a dream team. Damn that reality. Now I am not sure I ever loved you, nor you me. Our darling was the romance; the fact and fiction of finding each other. For years, it was enough. Until…

  • Love letter # 604 They will not love you. They do not know how. Not like you would prefer. I say this to myself to make it better. For me, but also for you. Because I do not wish to resent you. There is little point, and you do not deserve it. My asking never…

  • Love letter # 828 Congratulations. I wish you well. Both of you. Truly. It is good to be found. Having seen the truth of this, I would not wish it lost. And yet…everything else, which I need not repeat. For that which is unsaid is already known.   

  • Love letter # 527 Because I had no other way, I arranged coincidences. It was not difficult. Our routines made it easy for me to be at the same cafeteria, to catch the same train. We would talk and I would wonder. Could I make you notice me? Did you see what I saw? Then…

  • Love letter # 629 Once, in the garden of stars, it seemed like we were side by side – but that was a trick of the light. From the vantage of great distance alone did we appear together. Here, the space is beyond our measure. You are on the other side of the sky. I…

  • Love letter # 577 Because you see us from afar, we are all tiny…like stars.
