Author's Note: This is a very personal little short story that I wrote recently. It conveys everything that I feel for someone very dear to me, but can never tell due to extenuating circumstances. Those of you who may know me from my others stories should know why. ;) I hope you enjoy, and if you will, please leave a review!
A Letter to You….
Shadow "Kite" Kitsune
My dear, sweet X,
I know that you don't know this, but when I say it, it's true. I love you, with every fiber of my existence. I adore you, and the ground that you walk on. I obsess over everything you do, everything you say, and everything you touch. You are a God among mortals, and for that, I love you.
Ever since the day I laid eyes on you, I knew that I had fallen hopelessly in love. After all this time, my love for you could never be greater. I sat, watching and listening to you from afar, and every moment I spent doing so only made me love you more and more.
But it is most unfortunate that I will never be able to confess my love, my desire, my passion to be with you. Through neither spoken word nor written word shall my feelings be made known to you or anyone else but myself. Although it pains me, tortures me oh so sweetly in both body and soul, I know that my love for you will never be allowed to flourish.
So as I write this words most true, I cry, knowing of dreams and fantasies that which will never come to fruition. No matter how close you may at first appear, I know that you shall always and forever be just out of my reach. It is because of my love that we will never be able to become one in body, mind, and spirit. You are the untouchable treasure, the forbidden fruit that taunts and haunts me in my dreams.
And so I weep, knowing of hopes and dreams that which will never be a reality. I see you. I hear you. And oh how I wish to feel you. But alas, that is but another luxury in which life has so selfishly denied me. Although you may never know the extent of my love, devotion, or desire, I ask that you continue to be the one that has ever so kindly, and ever so greatly affected me, in body, mind, and spirit.
When I hear the wind blow by my ear, I will hear your name whisper to my soul, and faint, soft scent that so stimulates the senses. You will forever be my sunrise, and my sunset. You will, forever be, mine.
With love most grand,
