“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”

it's funny how we went from talking non-stop
to pretending we didn't know each other
i find it amusing
because I thought I would care more
it's funny what hearbreak does to you

And this urge to run away from what I love is a sort of sadism I no longer pretend to understand.

my boyfriend pretends to be so edgy when he forgets that he literally used to write me lengthy, dripping-with-sap love letters multiple times a month like an Edwardian man who's passionately in love. and he thinks he's so hard
