Back in the days when a boy was in love with a girl he would write a letter professing his infinite love for her.
He would sit down on a chair, pen and paper in hand, thoughts in mind and pour out his love.
He would read it over and over again to ensure that it’s been written to perfection and nothing had been left out.
In the morning he’d go up to her and hand over the letter to her.
She would already know the contents of the letter because they always shared smiles and blushes, she was just waiting for this letter, with it’s contents.
Dear Mother Nature,
Open your eyes, so I may see the stars
Smile, so I may witness the brightness of the sun
Face me, so I may see the beauty of flowers
Flip your hair, so I may see the flowing river
Hold my hands, so I may feel the softness of the summer grass.
He’d name her his earth and all that’s within it. He’d say she was mother nature.
She’d read it and be flustered because it was better than she had hoped and imagined.
Would you do me the honor of making the day longer than the night so I may take a walk in it while looking up at you?
She’d take out another piece of paper and pen, scribble “yes” and slip it under his locker. He’d get to his locker and find her answer, he’d shout “yes” like a maniac in the middle of the hallway.
It’s a hot day because I’m hot anxious about our date
After school he’d take her out on a date, he’d open the door, she’d walk in first and then he’d follow.
He’d compliment her beauty, he’d compliment her character.
He’d hold her hand during the walk and at the end of the day he’d walk her up to her house.
She’d give him a kiss on the cheek even though she wanted to kiss him, she’d play hard to get just because she could.
It’s a full moon tonight because my heart is swollen with joy and excitement.
In the morning pen and paper in hand, he’d write
It’s cloudy because my mind is disarrayed with thoughts of you
He’d ask her out again, she’d say yes. After their second date he’d kiss her cheek goodnight.
It’s a half moon because I’m smiling at the thought of you
When they have their first kiss.
It’s a cold day because I’m trying to freeze time, sorry.
When they have their first fight.
It’s raining because we fought
It thundered at the thought of loosing you, I’m sorry.
***I’m absolutely obsessed with hand written letters.
CHIVALRY -The ethical code of the knight prevalent in Medieval Europe, having such primary virtues as mercy towards the poor and oppressed, humility, honour, sacrifice, fear of God, faithfulness, courage and utmost graciousness and courtesy to ladies.
They say “Chivalry is dead” but I want a chivalrous man
Wanting a good guy and wanting respect is now old fashioned.
