The Beatrice Letters

“I will love you as a drawer loves a secret compartment, and as a secret compartment loves a secret, and as a secret loves to make a person gasp, and as a gasping person loves a glass of brandy to calm their nerves, and as a glass of brandy loves to shatter on the floor, and as the noise of glass shattering loves to make everyone else gasp, and as someone else gasping loves a nearby desk to lean against, even if leaning against it presses a lever that loves to open a drawer and reveal a secret compartment. I will love you until all such compartments are opened and discovered, and until all the secrets have you gasping into the world. I will love you until all the codes and hearts have been broken and until every anagram and egg has been unscrambled…”

– Lemony Snicket

Love Letters

Write me a love letter.
Tell me everything you love about me.
Tell me about the day we first met,
How it made you feel.
Tell me the sensation you get
In your stomach
As I kiss you.
Describe my finest attributes
In poetic diction.
Tell me
You love me
In words,
