Raw Sentiment, a Freewrite



I received a love letter today! My first in decades! It's not every day that a little old lady receives a love letter. Is the frequency of love letters inversely proportional to age?

Back to my love letter. More love, less math. Math is a bummer after all and love, well, sometimes love is a bummer too, but...

Back to my love letter! The fellow actually said, among other things

In truth, you are fairer to me
than any flower.

I had no one to tell for some time, until @mariannewest provided the perfect prompt, fair, for me to tell all the world!

To be honest, this love letter was a post by a freewriter freewriting. He started his freewrite off with

Today's #freewrite is dedicated to @owasco. O waw r u ever going to be pissed when u see this.

He and I had gotten very chummy in print over on that other blockchain that shall not be named, are very appreciative of each others' freewrite skills, and have more than once written poetry together. He is less than half my age. I was not pissed. I felt something closer to bliss.

I pulled it together and responded to his gushing, mushy, no holds barred love letter thus:

I am verklempt!
and hope you never see
how unkempt
I truly be
