The Letter

Each star is a compliment, the ones you whispered over the phone that time.
"Tell me all the things you like about me."
With each word my stomach clenched, because you really are not one to be challenged.
I'll stop waiting one of these days... just hold out a bit longer.
The wind screams all the unspoken things between us.
Can you hear it?
The cinema mocks me, and my impatience grows larger as my hair grows longer.
The planets are aligned for us; I'll find Wonderland soon, after I rest for a while.
You can come, if you want.
My friend knows all my secrets; she's getting tired of hearing your name.
I wrote you a letter.
Barely ten sentences, and it's all I ever needed to say.
Do you want to read it?
Yikes, that came out of nowhere. Suggestions?

    I like the mystery in here. It sounds like it would be a good beginning to a story, if you wanted to continue it.

    Goodness, the beginning just took my breath away! There's something unspeakable in this... its absolutely brilliant. I've already read it twice; I think I'll go read it again. Wow. This just—wow!
