A Love Letter from A Diva's Journal

Love Letter No.1
I am in the midst of an exodus from familiar surroundings.  This is not always a bad thing, leaving old things behind and embarking on something new, especially when it's a different mindset. However, when the departure takes place and love is tied to it, it makes it difficult to completely withdraw from the strings that bind hearts together.

In order for the surreal love to take place, I have to surrender the love I have.  At first I thought "I can't just lay it down, I need this love that has become a part of who I am."  But then I think to myself, I want the unreal, unusual, unearthly, unmovable uncanny, unstoppable kind of love. And I want it with you.

Yes what we have is unique and imaginative.  It's strong and upholding.  When we exchange the words "I Love You" we speak more than volumes to each other, we make things happen in the atmosphere.  As powerful as we are together, we are on our way to being more than what we are now. Plain and simple.  It's a matter of fact.

Like a moon that passes into the shadow of another moon, we're becoming an eclipse.  I will see you when you're not even there, I will feel you when you're not even around, because I love you.  I will love you until there's none left in me.  Until there is nothing left of me.  Until I can't anymore, and then still I will love you.

Today I write Love Letter No.1 and on this journey we are taking and until this evacuation of the old us is complete, I will write a love letter to you, for you are the one who has an impression so deep in the ventricle of my heart I truly believe it beats more for you than it does for me.

Keep our love relevant until the next time, until the next love letter from A Diva's Journal.

"How do you know love is gone? If you said that you would

 be there at seven and you get there by nine, and he or she has

 not called the police yet - it's gone."

-Marlene Dietrich
