Cigarettes in the Theatre

I'm going to carry on with the letter challenge that I started about a week ago (look further down the page for the list of questions and details about the post) I finished on number 8 last time- 'letter to your favourite internet friend' so next on the list is, of course, number 9 :)

9. Letter to someone you wish you could meet-
To my future husband (if you exist) I don't want to ruin any surprises but I wish I could meet you. Just so when we are old I can remember you when you were young. So we know the past as well as the present and it's not just a story or a photograph, it's a memory. If you do exist then you are out there somewhere, which is a confusing thought. I could walk past you tomorrow, you could be someone I know or someone across the world. I look forward to meeting you :) x

10.Letter to someone you don't talk to you as much as you'd like to-
Hello again, you're going to get fed up with all these letters but you've come up a lot in this! We can talk for hours so why don't we? I don't like bothering you but you say how we should catch up and so we should. We will both have to make more effort.

11. Letter to a deceased person you wish you could talk to-
To my grandfather, I don't know you, I've never met you but I only hear good things of you. I don't know what I would ask you if I could, but it would have been nice to have you around. Especially for my mum I know she misses you.

12. Letter to the person you hate most/caused you a lot of pain-
It's so odd but that part of my life is a blur. Maybe because I was young but I remember before that year and after it but the time in between just merges. It's like a dream that I never think about. When I do, I realise what a big deal it was- I took it in my stride and all the teachers watched on, not understanding why I put up with it until that day when I finally couldn't take it anymore. I cannot look you in the eye.

13. Letter to someone you wish could forgive you-
I'll will be honest, I can't really think of anyone. I've fallen out with people but we usually make up. The only people I can think of are insignificant- never good friends, no one who has had an impact on my life. Surely people who matter would forgive you? I just hope I've never hurt anyone enough that it will stay with them for long.

14. Letter to someone you've drifted away from-
I'll be honest with you I have no idea why we're not good friends anymore. We get on so well when we are together but we've both changed I suppose. We used to be so close, trust each other so much and have such a laugh. Now you seem superficial somehow, like there's more to you even though that's how you always are. I don't think we'll ever be as close as we were but I still love you :) Ginie xx

15. Letter to the person you miss the most-
Even though you're here in person, you're not quite here in mind. You know sometimes when you look in the mirror and you don't recognise yourself? That's how I am with you..the person doesn't match the face. It's so odd, maybe because I've known you for so long but you aren't the same girl I knew then.

That's it for now, halfway through already! I enjoyed writing these and hope you enjoyed reading them. There'll be more in the future :)

  1. i DID enjoy reading your letters

    it makes me think about what my letters would include and to whom they would be written to. i've once written a letter to someone who i have so much to say, to tell them, to let them know, to but cant possibly still talk to them. ahh.
    lovely post ;D

  2. Thank you :) It is actually really fun to do, you should try it! It makes you think about people more :) x
