Preface

Whilst whiling away years of my dreary life in an, unfulfilling, boring job, I was given a book to read by some kind acquaintance. This book stirred in me the desire to write in the same style.

For some time I had been writing poetry to keep myself amused, and so the first thing I tried to write was the ‘Love Poem’. This was then left untouched, unread, until one day in 1986 I had more time available and I sat myself down with pencil and paper and listed a number of expressions, these began to evolve into a Love Letter, and another, and another until I could write no more.

I have therefore called these ‘Love Letters’.

The Letters are written from only one side, the lady’s, and it is left to the imagination of the reader as to how the love affair progressed, and what response was received to these Letters.

The reader will learn from the progress of the Letters, that the two of them, met, realised there was a mutually strong attraction, and so their story began.

What reason he had to leave, one can only surmise. To wonder also whether he is in fact a married man. To experience the practiced love of the man, is mentioned many times in the later Letters. In this age, one wonders where he might have gained this degree of experience to satisfy and make her body crave for him so?

This can only have been unrequited love, or was it?

As an exercise in writing, what has it achieved?

A story with no beginning and no ending.
