At least 11.

Singing a love letter I wrote about 10 months ago.…g-love-letters

My Dearest Love,
The days without you are deserts of dry and dusty heat. The bright sun of your absence burns my body and threatens to turn my heart to ash. Oh, but to be in the embrace of your eyes again, those deep pools of sweet and chilling waters - I dream of it. How I long for the calming cool of your touch, that blessed shade in this world of harsh, searing, light.
Rescue me from the torment of the dust and the dry, the heat and the light, this world of endless fire. Let me lay down my head in your deep shadows and lap greedily at your waters. Let me swim, and roll, and play, tucked away from the harsh light of the world in the depths of your shade. You are my oasis of cool and calm, always.
Time without you is torture. Aye, it is true that in this, Death has given me his pain, but not his release. I would weep, but my tears are ripped away by the fire of this world before they can leave me eyes. I would cry out, but my throat is dry and raw. Only my oasis, only you, can be my salvation.
My Love, please send me hope. Tell me that I will be graced by your shade once again. Tell me that my oasis in this burning world still waits for me. Tell me that I will be within your shadows soon.
In deepest hope against despair, your love always,
