Voodoo Letter, Road Trip Part 3



Dear Jack,








I hope that you will feel this pin through your heart as I feel the sharp prick of the pin you slid into mine. I dream about you every night, strange dreams, cruel dreams, baroque dreams, drawing room comedy dreams where the polite laughter is always at my expense, and, right before I wake, I'm left alone at the roadside, the seaside, the dinner party, the carnival.

If only magic and prayer would keep you bound to me...

Love,


X

Being from the area - I recognize one of these and this resonates with me culturally ... not that I have ever used one or had one ~~ one of the charms of the area!!

Nicely done ~~

Very nicely penned.

Who knows - in 30 years you may be married to him. Stranger things have happened.

I am left with only questions. Questions that I probably don't want to know the answers to, even if you were willing to give them.

Very well done.
