Dear Love,

I have been meaning to write to you for sometime now. But then, I convinced myself that it had not been long enough. Not yet. Though you never really visited me in person, I was fascinated by your cousins whom I have met over the years. Remember your youngest cousin Crush whom you sent my way while in college. I will never forget the embarrassing moment when I subjected to life lessons upon admission. Remember the close cousin, Unrequited love who stalked me for a while. I am sure it was not your fault. But it took two years for me to realize that it was not worth the pain and finally let go. 

Since then I have been waiting. Patiently. For you to visit. I hope you are better than your cousins. I accept that they gave me wonderful memories. But they also left scars. Some scars so deep that my emotions seem to have fallen into them and have been trapped there ever since. I hope that when you finally visit, you would bring with you the pieces of my heart your cousins took. I hope you would fix those scars and rescue my emotions. I do not want to meet any more of your cousins. I have just enough pieces of my heart left to be able to function normally. So let us not risk it now. 

Enough of this hide and seek. Let's meet up as soon as possible, shall we ? 


  1. That's intersestingly written.

    1. Ha, I never thought of it that day! But now, the idea seems good.

  2. That was cute. I like how Crush was like a cousin of love.
