She’s an old love letter

She’s an old love letter…

The one that speaks of truth and emotions.

The kind to be kept like a hidden treasure,

with an extraordinary power that lies beneath its words.

She’s that letter that has folded herself to fit into this world.

Didn’t want to cause trouble,

she just wants to belong.

She’s a love letter of bizarre colors,

with an abyss of depth that makes her invincible.

Her words will lure you into something wonderful.

The one you would want to read about more and more.

She’s an old love letter that has aged too well,

Yet too fragile and too weak, her words sometimes a blur

But she’s still a love letter that apparently speaks of love—no matter how torn, no matter how old.

  1. It’s amazing. The kind to be kept like a hidden treasure, with an extraordinary power that lies beneath its words. I like that line because I literally have a few hidden in my treasure box. But every single line is deep, it’s great. BTW nice picture, enjoy your trip ‘down under’.

      1. I think I’ll post it today and hopefully some people will join, the idea I had to improve the challenge turned out to be a spiral of problems when applied to a group of writers, so I had to take a different approach and I will improvise along the way

  2. A picture speaks a thousand words but words aren’t spoken as beautifully unless they are written, and they were written beautifully Apple. You are that beautiful love letter, young with an old soul and lovely heart. The words are amazing and they paint a vivid picture of love. Every line comes from the heart, if you are the love letter, you have my stamp of approval. 🌹🌹❤️

  3. I like it. A good analogy. Since you’re writing in the present tense, I would change “she didn’t want to…” to “She doesn’t want to cause trouble” and “But, she’s a love letter that apparently speaks of love” I would drop the “But” and the “apparently”… She’s a love letter that speaks of love – … 🙂

    1. Hi there! Thank you! I use “didn’t” because of the previous line “she has folded herself to fit into this worl” like metaphorically speaking that she became flexible enough to adapt and it was in past tense/past participle bcos she has already done it. I put “but” in the last line cos the previous line also speaks of her vulnerable side, emphasising that despite being weak, she’s still an old love letter that speaks of love. Hope the grammar doesn’t bother you no more with this explanation lol but thanks for taking the time to read ♥️

  4. When you speak with emotion and feeling, grammar has no place! Just write how you feel and say what you need to…it’s your words and expressions that count. Grammar can get in the way of true self.
