IMMORTAL BELOVED


One of my most favorite love letters of all time from one of the world's acclaimed musical virtuoso

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

LETTERS

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.

THE HIGHWAYMAN

Alfred Noyes (1880-1958)
The Highwayman


PART ONE
 I
    THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, 
    The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, 
    The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, 
    And the highwayman came riding— 
                      Riding—riding— 
    The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

BOOKS I'D LIKE TO SEE ADAPTED INTO MOVIES

While I love books, I also enjoy my beloved characters being brought to life in the big screen. There is the possibility of the film being such a bad idea but then book fans of the Game of Thrones (TV series may apply) enjoy the series as well.

1. Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell


goodreads reviews here

For the first time in weeks, Park didn’t have that anxious feeling in his stomach on the way home from school, like he had to soak up enough of Eleanor to keep him until the next day.
