never let go

She’s the kinda girl you never let go of
The one that finds you even in your dreams
She has that crazy look in her eyes that tells you she’s the one
Don’t you ever let that go
People keep telling me you’re just a crush. No….god, no. I love you. I know that I love you. I feel that I love you. My every being loves you.

Peter Sellers as Lionel Meadows in “Never Let Go” (1960)

Peter Sellers gives the brilliant portrayal of a sadistic, ruthless criminal who runs a gang of stolen car racketeers. In the course of the film Meadows’ mind becomes more and more deranged. He stops at nothing and his reign is based on violence, terror and fear until he is hunt down by an ordinary but courageous salesman whose car has been stolen by Meadows’ gang.

Sadly “Never Let Go” was a box office flop and Peter Sellers never again played a villain although his performance is absolutely fascinating and proves that he was a highly gifted actor who convincingly could play serious roles.

I see it.

I see us getting married, moving in together, cuddling on the couch, waking up to the good morning kisses, having arguments, making up after, cooking our favorite foods, smiling for no reason, annoying each other when we’re bored, having the cutest little babies, watching them grow up, never leaving each other’s side.

I see us together.
