Top Contents for Love Letters
Let’s just say you want to tell someone you like what you truly feel. Or it’s your first year anniversary with your boyfriend or girlfriend, or espouse on that matter. But you’re out of cash, your bank account’s depleted until your next salary pay, and your credit card’s maxed-out (even the swipe??), then you’re left with only one choice… -a love letter.
But of course you don’t want to end up murdering the occasion’s value or the thought you want to send-out to that single person you truly care for by some randomly-written letter brimming with insipidity and some cheap commercial tag lines you found online. So what should be done?
Realistically speaking, not all people have the upper-hand in expressing what they feel, even to the letter. Especially when we start to talk about emotions like, love and liking, no matter how mainstream these feelings seem, they still manage to churn the capacity to express of anyone. Leaving them frustrate and unable to communicate effectively. This is something one would wish to avoid, especially when the occasion calls a dire need for an expression. This is a handicap in making love letters. However, there are no straight rules in making a pretty good one. After all love letters are reflective of the writer’s emotions and that may vary from person to person, time to time. Here are some contents though that might come in handy:
- Rain-Check Contents
This is the part where you get to exhume those stored-up and delayed things you want to say to your beloved, probably because you were procrastinating one time or the lack of the Holy Spirit’s descent. This time, finally find that courage to say those words you have been wanting to spill-out all this time. This works pretty well on love letters you give for an exposition to a long-time crush or by finally telling the one who’s been courting you the nod.
- Figure of Speech Contents
Well don’t just anyone love sugars? Same applies to those Shakespearean (or Transylvanian, whatever suits you) figures of speech that sweetens those heart-filled statements. Words might just be words, but sugarcoated words? -that’s a different story. Poetry also helps, so you might want to make a brief skim on those sonnets and love poems, and then reinvent. It is important that your thoughts remain original. Not some plagiarized reap from love-quote sites. Metaphors, Exaggerations, or Idioms, anything will do.
- Outright Contents
They say that the truth is the best way to go, more than half the time it is. t is imperative that you write the way you speak. That way you enable your letter to be more “you” and your message clear and straightforward. At times, nothing could please the one you care for more than hearing the simple truth from you.
- Tagline Contents
A letter, even a romantic one (especially a romantic one) should have a bang. And nothing can be more “bang-ish” than having your own tag-lines. Statements like, “Forever and Ever Babe” or “You are my one and only”, corny as they may seem but they never fail to leave an impression to your reader. After all, it is your goal to be acknowledged if not remembered.
The truth my friends, that when it comes to relationships and matters of the heart, the world is the cheesiest place to be (unless you have Martian methods for romance). But never mind that. What’s truly important is that, through it we become more sentient beings, ultimately more human. A creation with a heart and being cheesy is just a becoming of who we are. So don’t shy-away in making those letters. Make ‘em!
