Letters of Hope and Love

I know I haven't been here in a while. I was here and yet I was somewhere else. Sometimes life takes over in such a way that everything else has to take a back seat. Perhaps some of us don't know how to balance our lives the way we should.

I know I haven't been here but I have written so much since then. I wish I could share it all with you. I wrote letters. Of love. Of hope. I wrote them with strength and courage. I wrote them with life and fulfilment. I also wrote them with a hint of fear and despair. But I couldn't write them with a pen hence there is no proof that I wrote all those letters.

But I did... and then you know what I did with them? Do you really want to know?

I slipped them in the envelope of time and I buried them in the darkest corner of my past. You can't find 'em because I can't either.

I could have written the letters with colorful crayons. I could have painted nice pictures for you. Perhaps I could have included those poems of love I used to write because I didn't know any better.

You know I could have written about politics. About current events. About fashion or about movies. I could have written about planes crashing into buildings or about the death toll in war torn countries. I could have written about the economy crashing or poverty in the third world.

But I chose to write about love. I ignored it all and chose to write about love.

I could have...I should have.. I would have...

But I didn't.

And that's the truth.

A very enigmatic post..Loved it.. Though u could have written on multitudes of other topics but you selected to write on love and that's because love is either the most beautiful or the most painful thing on earth but it definitely is the best thing..
