Dear letterists,

Finish the story below and tag your letter "storytime" so we can find it and leave a comment below.

"She wasn't the person for blind dates. This whole ordeal just made her very nervous. Why did I agree to this in the first place, she wondered.

As the door opened, the bell made a loud noise, making her look up. She wasn't the only one. Everyone in the bar looked up. They were all surprised to see....... "

Dear letterists,

Think of something you really want to do or have been meaning to do for a long time.
I dare you, to do it today. Whatever it is, if you can do it, you need to do it. Today.

Write a letter about what it is you wanted to do for a long time. Then, when you did it, write another letter about how it went, what it taught you, and if you perhaps would do it again. Tag your letters "life".

So today I'm not the one challenging you...
You're challenging yourself!

Go live your life.

Hace aproximadamente 5 años dejé de escribir en esta plataforma, en aquel entonces recién cumplía los 18 años de edad, de hecho ya no recuerdo mi usuario y contraseña, recuerdo que pasaba por momentos difíciles donde la única forma de descargar lo que mi alma guardaba era de esta manera, las personas me leían e incluso algunos se identificaron conmigo a pesar de ser individuos totalmente distintos, algunos pasaron por lo mismo y otros lo estaban viviendo en carne y huesos, sentir el calor de las personas a pesar de la distancia me dio la fortaleza para seguir y convertirme en lo que ahora soy... hace días decidí volver a esto ya que es una forma de ayudar a personas que pasan por momentos don...

You held me every time as I cried today
Tears running down my face
Breathing becoming erratic
Sobbing into your shoulder,
soaking your shirt,
the time passing until I finally
had to leave for school.

I knew more and more
in every passing hour, every minute
every second, the time between the individual seconds,
that you are the one.

The one I want the get down on one knee and propose to
The one I want to marry
The one I want to grow old with
Through all the good and all the bad
You are the one I want to spend my life with,
and not be apart any longer than we have to.

Thoughts of proposals and rings rose high and mighty above all else in my brain,
rushing over all the other thoughts like a t...

Come away with me
We will steal away kisses under stars
Love broken and raw
Fingers tracing memories
Exposing all our scars

Theres a disturbed feeling in the air tonight. A tense aftershock of the day that proceeded it. A cool,  crisp wind meeting the sound of nature. Then there is me. Alone. Alone and missing you.

MIND WANDERING

"..Not all who wander are lost" says Tolkien.  That much is true. I rewind my mind always back to you. I self-medicate with my own creative ' memories' and eleivate unhappiness by absorbing myself this obsession with you. I know reality is nothing more that an illusion however  persistent it may be. I receive comfort from my frequent visits to this fabrication of what might have been and glide rather than slide on the scars of the love that was ours.

Tears fell as she said her last good-bye to her dog. Fourteen years together... and it was time to continue the journey without him.

REFLECTION

Lonely as an only child I'd stare at the eight year old reflection in my Barbie handheld mirror. Golden firey hair and pink blushed cheeks. Atomically thinking not, "what I will look like in ten years time?", but, "who will I be? Where will I be?" And most importantly, "who will be with me?"... Mum and Dad were strangers who came and gave me gifts on birthdays and Christmas. Nana loved me and looked after me. All I knew was her love was limited to life in childhood. I sensed a ticking clock on my comfort zone. Low and behold eighteen years old, exactly ten years later, I was out on my own, out in the cold. No apron strings too hold. My life was about to unfold more so unravel.. I ...

I hung on your every word
craved your touch of every minute of every day.
When you first said I Love You,
I buried those words deep in my soul to the point of no return.
Every time you touched me,I'd buried the memory of how it felt in that moment deep in the pockets of my mind,so I would never forget what that sensation felt like.
everything about you,about us I buried deep inside me so I could hold on to them forever in the event that you ever decided to go,at least I would have those moments,those feelings,those words.
I guess I was right to hold on to them because now they are all I have.

Voices inside my head,
echo things that you've said.
Forces inside my soul,
Hold you and won't let you go.
Wild horses inside my mind,
Take me to a place back in time.
Lightning inside my spine
Strikes me that you are still mine.
Feelings inside my heart,
Breaks me now we are apart.
Tortured inside my life,
One day we'll make it alright.

FIRST LOVE pt. 3

Occasionally, I get dreams and I'm right back there again. I'm still as trembly as I was back then. I sometimes weep at this vast inner romantic saga that sporadically played out in my mind. There's all this mass of emotional energy just spreading outwards and it all ends terribly unhappy. People talk about one love but there is the need to love and the need to be loved and they're not the same thing.

FIRST LOVE pt. 2

All first love is unrequited ultimately because it's so huge, it's such an act of giving and it requires so much back that it can never be given back; and indeed you wouldn't necessarily want it given back.  It's just like an atom bomb, it's all the energy of who you are and who you want to be and what you love and what you hope to be explodes; and it is impossible for  single human being to offer that back to you in a mutual way.  It would be like matter meeting anti-matter. It is almost important that what you do is worship and yearn and long, and that for me was the single most important thing in my life.

FIRST LOVE pt. 1

That unbelievable hole that opens up inside me of longing and yearning and pain and joy. That great bundle of toxic emotions alied to beauty and opens up in to nature and glory and suddenly connects me to every love poet and love song ever written. That explosion in my head and heart can never be matched, "you can never hope to recapture that first fine careless rapture" I think the poet put it. But it stays with me like a good acid trip. I get a little flashback every now and then - it'll never leave me. It teaches me to see and    feel things differently, it educates my soul.
