(WHAT BETTER TIME [THAN] NOW)

NOV. 9, 2020

(RED)
[indent]
You know sometimes in life a person crosses our path
unexpectedly, different [than] those before him, yet a [sense] of comfort
seems to allow us to drop our shields, and give an opportunity to
that unknown entity who stands in front of you seeking to earn a
place in your life, mind, and heart.
[indent]
You stole a piece of me in a way no woman has ever done
before. [It] wasn't [planned], yet it [happened], and [I] like the person you
are, inside and out. For the first time in my life, [I] like a woman
not for what she can do for me or how she looks, but for who you
are. Meaning that for so much of my life, looks were the core of
how [I] chose a woman, and now as [an] older man, looks are only 30% of
my choice, and that other 70% is about what you have on the inside
because the inner beauty is something that stays the same throughout
life while [our] bodies and looks change as we get older. So, to make
a long story short, [I] like the inner beauty you have more than your
[outer] beauty.
[indent]
Your beauty within is pure, and [possesses] an aroma that has
me wanting more, and [I] really want to get [to] know you as a woman.
I want to get [to] know the real you, and what makes you cry, and what
makes you smile. I'm a true believer that your [outer] beauty which
you do possess is for me to lust over whereas your inner beauty gives
me the opportunity to cherish, adore, and worship you as a woman with
values, strength, morals, goals, and worth.
[indent]
I truly want to learn, and love your mind completely with
no strings [attached] other than you opening up to me. I want to cherish
the good that you have stored inside you, and I want to be [a part] of
your growth from the bad that has penetrated your fragile yet strong
heart [whether] that bad was an old boyfriend who didn't treasure that
beautiful person you are, and in [some way stripped] you of your worth or
just the insecurities you may think you have.
[indent]
You may even think that these words are only being said
because [I'm] locked up, however as a man who is confined, [I] still have
a free mind to like who [I] want, and [I] like you. So to think [I'm]
just playing games with you is [disrespectful] not only to me as a man,
but to you as a woman. Because what you are truly saying is that the
only way a man would want you is to play games with your heart, which
is false, and if that crosses your mind, please don't even think that
about me because [I] respect you [too] much to even think that way about
you.
[indent]
I believe because [I'm] locked up, it gives us [an] opportunity
to get to know each other better, and form an emotional connection
that would be unbreakable. I would be lying if [I] said it will all be
peaches and cream because it won't. However, what [I] can tell
you is that [I'll] give you my best self, and [I'll] help build our trust,
and foundation that we will use as our platform for our relationship,
and all [I] ask from you in return is honesty, trust, and loyalty.
(WELL MAYBE I'LL ASK FOR A KISS OR TWO EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE) (LOL)
I can only promise you my honesty, loyalty, trust, and what [I'll] guide
you as well as strengthen your mind when you believe [you're] worthless.

I can promise to tell you every day how much you mean to me, and
how beautiful you are. That not a day will go pass that we're
together will you believe anything other [than], to me, you're the
treasure to which [I] will cherish as if you were the last woman on
this earth.
[indent]
From the day you accept me as your king, and you my queen,
your past will become just that -- the past --, and everything, along
with everyone who has hurt you will become just another part of
your past that couldn't bring you down, and you'll see that the
struggles you endured only make you a stronger woman.
[indent]
I don't want to put everything in one massive [letter] so [I] drop
the ink, and in doing so, [I] hope that you will at least give me an
opportunity to be [a part] of your past struggles, and your [future]
plans as well as growth. Never mistake your worth as worthless
because there is no great kind without an ever greater queen by
his side......
[indent]
I know that you are developing [feelings] for me, and [I]
don't want you to feel as if you have to hide them because
[you're] afraid of being hurt, and let down again. Because [I] have no
intentions of ever hurting you, and even if you don't think so, it
is okay to be vulnerable because you have a man who will give you
the tools and jewels you need to overcome any such vulnerabilities
you may have. (PLUS I FIND IT VERY SEXY WHEN A WOMAN IS VULNERABLE)
because she is able to be her true self (unshielded)......

FOR NOW I SEND MY TRUE THOUGHTS
TO YOU MY QUEEN IN HOPES THAT AT
THE FINISH OF THIS LETTER YOU WILL
CHOOSE ME AS YOUR KING......
ANTHONY,
