Across Campus; by Laura (Merced, CA, USA)
Dearest; The first time I saw you you were with another girl. She was
tall, pretty, shapely, funny... everything I wished I was. And you were
handsome, charismatic, charming and witty... everything I wanted!
But you were across campus, and I didn't know you. You were a faraway muse; a hero I could only dream about with feelings that I couldn't quite explain. Was it love?
Maybe... I was definitely drawn to you from the moment I laid eyes on you. But it wasn't until we had class together that it clicked... it was a small class, not unusual of our university, and that meant I actually got to speak to you; and then I knew.
You learned my name, read my paper and you smiled, Oh how you smiled. You melted my stoic exterior to a burning, yearning desire. I wanted you.
You won me over with one line. You said, oh I remember it so clearly, "I'm afraid at what kind of man I'll become in five, ten years." Such a candid, vivid, crystal-clear view into your soul!
I learned that in addition to being a man who could spice up my life - and save me from my boredom - you were someone who cared about who they were. Someone who wanted to be a better person.
So was I surprised when you gave me your number? Infinitely! Was I surprised when our conversations became more frequent? Indubitably! Was I surprised when I learned you returned my feelings? Unbelievably!
And here we are, and I love you beyond the stars. You are my source of creation, the love of my life, the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.
You don't care that I'm damaged goods - that you've had to undo the hurt that I've suffered at the hands of other men. You are no ordinary man, you are a super man... that even kryptonite can't weaken.
I, who shirked away from the idea of being trapped in a relationship with one person want to be with you for entirety! Until I breathe my last breath I want you by my side. What more is there to say?
You were beyond my hopes and dreams... now you're my lover, my be all to end all. I love you, Kyle. And I will always love you; until the world wrenches us apart.
