I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it’s just too much. The current’s too strong. They’ve got to let go, drift apart. That’s how it is with us. It’s a shame….because we’ve loved each other… But in the end, we can’t stay together forever.

I think you just can’t choose, can you?

concept: we’re twenty five, i’m starting my diplomatic career in London, he’s finishing his PhD and living the high life around Italy. We saw each other the last time three months ago, for our engagement party in the French Riviera. We talk on the phone every night when the dinner parties we attend are over, I send him my books with love letters inside, he always sends them back with pressed roses hidden between the pages. We live our lives pursuing different kinds of success, living love with freedom around the world, but each other’s arms always feel like coming home. When I get off my plane in Rome, his elegant coat and his scarf welcome me back. He hugs me tightly, hiding his face on my neck, and we walk to our apartment hand in hand. We make love and go to the opera. I never feel trapped, but I’m not lonely.

I’m so sorry that I wasted your time because you really do mean a lot to me and I hope you have a very nice life because I really think you deserve it. I really do. I hope you do, too. Okay, then. Goodbye.
