Favorite 3-lines from any poem: PROUD of my broken heart since thou didst break it,
Proud of the pain I did not feel till thee,
Proud of my night since thou with moons dost slake it,
Not to partake thy passion, my humility. -By: Emily Dickinson

A short Poem of your own[5-20lines]: Deliver Me: "I am the ghost of you in my arms
Hanging onto the last threads of life
My one and only
And the last
You will go into that sweet goodnight
Do not fear for I will always be here....
....and there
My brave beloved
My courageous companion
My fantastic friend
How sad it is, that tomorrow won't come again for you
And yet it will always come for me
If I could travel back in time.....
.....I'd be so selfish
Capturing my heart and taking it with you
As you fall into that eternal rest
We fought till the end
You fought the good fight
The stuff of legend
Now you're in heaven
Or whatever this crazy universe calls it
Come back to me
How can I go on with such an emptiness
Now I am in the all consuming
The darkness without my light
Wrapped in the slow trickle of sorrow
The rapture of anger
You smile your last
You were the calm before my storm
You were but the messenger....
Sent here to deliver me."

A short Poem of your own[5-20lines]:

She sewed up her wrists with the silver thread that links the stars in her still so dark sky.
She has an umbrella for the torrential rains of brackish waters of these days that you shouldn’t name, that you would rather forget.
I would like to hold her tightly but she is so frail, so fragile...She would die in my embrace into a burst of glass bead fountain.
Remants of crystal, waste of purity...and no one hears her when she murmurs dirty words.
Nobody knows that she hides closest to her heart the words that make her feel so alive that intoxicate her...

(it's an extract of a metaphoric story I published in one of my zines)

What you're looking for in a penpal:I am not sure if I really want another penpal,but I'd love to have this interesting Love letters sharing once in a while,I want a valentine's day every month;)ihih...I say so because the idea of this community touched me;) I have already thought about creating such a community,to share love,especially when we are all so in love with the love sensation and the romantic things:)

Otherwise mostly in a penpal I search for something very precise,a deep soul,a true passionate bond, a real sharing and feeling like-minded:)

Hello Sweetcheeks.

Pleaseplease remember to
Tell Us About YouCollapse )
so that you can get a Pen pal as soon as possible!


We would love to see what you have been sent!
Of course! We all love getting, and we all love giving.
and this is all fun and good.

But sometimes, people dont want certain things read.
Please, get permission from the sender weather you can post the letter within the community ONLY. I must make this VERY clear, and if these rules are not followed, I will kick some booty.

SO. When sending letters, write:




It's that easy.

Many Blessings;
Miss Tampon

My Loves,
So, as I'm going through the countless numbers of way to say this to you I couldn't find one that worked right. I'm still trying. If you end up having any questions or suggestions do speak up right away.
I'm so exhausted by starting somethings but having no support I have these great ideas, and feel like I need a small army to help accomplish them. But in this case all I need is your address, and the knowledge that you just want a love letter from me. 
A letter is as much a piece of art as anything in this world, except it's personal, I find myself writing so many impersonal letters to people now adays that I've lost the point.

This is What I Propose:
First we need members, I can't send letters or recieve them if I don't have addresses.
Secondly, we need someone who's competentant at keeping up a community moldytampon is our lady for that. She'll kick me in the butt or post if I'm drained.
Then we all need to know it's ok to write a love letter. It's alright it's not sappy, everyone enjoys a love letter.
Art, Poetry, and Simple one liners count, long indulgent letters count.
What I'd like people to try stay away from are the letters of mundane meaning: what you did that day, what you're doing. These letters should be about emotion and freedom, and that pound you get in your heart when you have no idea what to do.
It's ok, Letters can be clumsy.
Please remember, you're writing to a stranger that wants a love letter, not a stalker. Traditionally most penpals know what's up and what's going on. But this is truely for people who just want to send each other love letters.

I choose to name this community hidemyletters, because that's what I do. When I'm sent I letter I keep it tucked away for no one else, it makes it my personal treasure.  I can't vouge for the person writing you a letter, but it's my deepest hope that it will be beyond personal, that even before you read the words it makes you blush.
