Letter to My Beloved

I have conflicting emotions. What can I say? Being a teenager is not easy for me, or for anyone else. Sometimes I’m so happy, only to feel the opposite the next day.

I just want you to know that I do love you. You’re the one that I want to be with. You’re the one I think about before I fall asleep. You’re the one whose arms I could stay in for all eternity.

I just wish you would try a little harder. I know it isn’t easy for you either, but you know I need you. You know I can’t live without you. What you don’t know is just how deep my love for you is. It’s so frustrating that I can’t express it in words, although I have tried a thousand times or more.

You make me happy. I hold your hand and feel as if I could face anything the world chooses to dish out to me. I feel safe in your arms, like nothing could ever go wrong again. You smile at me and my heart skips a beat. I need you to work at this like I do.

Hold me just a little bit tighter; kiss me just a little bit longer, and I will be okay.
