Letters to Romeo

*Please come back and say you love me again*

I can’t remember vividly when we first met, but I remember the first time we spoke. You couldn’t seem to make a complete statement without stuttering, which wasn’t your fault. I guess it was because of those big bright eyeballs of mine staring right at you *giggles*. Time flew by and I never would have
thought we could ever be that close. Each day, I was grateful for the blessing of having a friend like you *smiles*. But you wanted more and I was scared it would destroy our friendship. This drew us apart and caused a drift so wide between us. I guess giving in to my fears hurt you so bad and pushed you away. But I was a child and a child will always behave as one.

The hardest thing they say; is loving someone and having the courage to let them love you back. I never knew how hard it was for you then but now, I know how it could hurt deeply when they don’t.

You see, the truth is: I would rather fight with you than be loved by someone else. It may have taken me this long to admit how much I want you; I have my regrets but my greatest will be not been able to express my own love to you. My dreams are all about you but I need you in reality too. Don’t think I was
just struck by the cupid; Oh! No, I just felt where its’ arrow pierced into my heart the most. You were like my best friend and lover, all wrapped in one which seems to no longer exist.

Right now, I can only pray and hope you will come back to me.

Hugs and kisses,

    Too bad we sometimes realise the beautiful things of life when they are gone.

    Your piece brought back memories.

    1. We missed out on love and remember how much we missed only when it’s beyond our grasp! Well written writer!

    Yeah. Sometimes we don’r realize how valuable things are until we loose them. I got the message. Well done.

    (@OLAMIOTAN) Dis would have been nice if it came out more as a story in the letter; the beginning looked more like a story and then it now ended as a letter.

    I guess a letter has to have the recipients name on it.

    We have no idea who you were writing it to.

    The idea is great but you would have done more with it.

    Twas just too direct for me.

    (@OLAMIOTAN) I guess we shud be expecting more letters from juliet to romeo cos the title says, ‘Letters to Romeo’, meaning there is more coming from juliet.

    Nice piece…

    enjoyed it but concur with @thaprince on the fact that it was quite short, and ended like a letter even though it didn’t begin as one. As they say, “If you love something/one so much, you should let it go. If it comes back to you, then it was yours from the very begining”

    @namdi @ibukunwrites @chijy thank you all.
    @thaprince it is a letter not a story…. We all write letters differently as far conveys the message we are passing, that is what is important. I didn’t put a recipient because it had a title ‘Letters to Romeo’ meaning the letter is addressed to Romeo.

    1. I know it wasn’t a story! It’s more of an open letter to the romeo Juliet knows but we don’t! Just appreciating the beauty; the fact that it was well written! It doesn’t have to be a story to be well written! Thumbs up! @olamiotan
