Love Letters

We were watching TV last night when Da changed the channel to Arirang. For those of you who do not know, Arirang is a Korean channel. Da has been working with Koreans for quite a while now hence the influence on him. It the time, Arirang, was airing a music video with a guy writing a love letter to a girl. It was artistically made and placed in an envelope with a stamped wax seal. As the girl pulled the letter out, she just saw a blank piece of paper. She didn't know what to do with it at first until a drop of dew hit the paper, revealing part of the invisible message. Then the girl started crying for some reason, further dampening the letter and revealing the rest of the message as she cried her eyes out. Then, cut!!!!!!!
I was brought back to the time when I was enthusiastic about writing love letters. It was something I was proud of doing during my younger years. The last time I was enthusiastic with writing love letters was about 4 or 5 years ago. Little did I know, the love letters I made with all my heart was for the wrong person. Its weird what a few years can do to a person. After my realization that all those letters I wrote were for nothing, I lost the drive to write such things. It just stopped. Its as if I already wrote everything I could in a love letter that there is nothing new to write. Only empty promises and endless I love you's that fade away as the invisible ink on that love letter in the music video. I'm not quite sure, but I get scared sometimes to write the same words of love and devotion over and over again for someone just to find out in the end that it was all a lie. I will be careful in writing my next love letter. Maybe, hopefully, the next love letter I'll write will be read by my own lips....and spoken to the one I'll spend the rest of my life with.....on my wedding day.
