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. You were
handsome, charismatic, charming, 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. Was it love at first sight?
Maybe... I was definitely drawn to you from the moment I laid on you. But it wasn't until we had class together... it was a small class, not unusual of our university, and that meant I actually got to speak to you!
You learned my name! You read my paper! You smiled... oh how you smiled. You reduced my stoic exterior to a burning, yearning pile of desire. You were all I ever wanted.
You won me over completely 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!
Yet here we are, and I love you more than words can express. You are my creative muse, 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 superman... that even Kryptonite can't weaken.
I, who shirks away from the idea of being trapped to one person from eternity, wants 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 some statuesque figure... 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.
