To Whom It May Concern

 

Please excuse

This intrusion

I need to know

Your thoughts

On the union

I am about to

Propose

I need to know

Whether there is

Any point me

Reserving

A special place

For you

Within the vault

Of my memory

Safe from

Predation

As well as my own

Eventual senility

I need to know

You understand

Precisely

Where I stand

And where

To find you

Should you ever

Agree to my

Subsequent proposal

Elsewise we

Shall be forced to remain

Familiar strangers

excellent metaphor here....will you keep me in your heart, will i keep you in mine...do we have an agreement? a contract?
or is this just another fleeting agreement, like a bad business proposal.

Is this for real, or is this just fantasy, caught in a landslide, no escape from insanity.... Thank .. read more
I love the decisive tone you use here, Neville, it’s so effective. While the course of love is best left mostly uncharted, there are times when we need more to go by, even if just for momentary assurance. Well said!

Wow, this comes across like a contract and it's clever. Appears very polite and also very considerate. Would this be an old one out for an airing or a brand new piece of work? I am left smiling and thinking how many copies of this has he printed off (lol). Always interesting writes Neville.

Well, I propose you remember anything I say or do. Not necessarily because it will have a significant imact on your life or well being, but it will allow me to tick your name off my sheet of people I have deposited useless information into. Now, if that sounds sexual in nature it is supposed to. Because those types of encounters are easier to remember whether you want to or not....just sayin'. Lol...this was a very ingenious piece of writing Neville...

This is really good. I love the fierce quiet intensity. Don't we all feel this way sometimes? Like there's a "safe space" dividing us somewhat? This reminds me of "back in the old days" when we would stay up all night & pour out every thought we ever thunk, as if it was all so important & pertinent. Now things go unsaid due to lack of . . . I don't know what . . . interest? enthusiasm? We're all floating in a thick gel that only gives the illusion of closeness *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

A very decent proposal I must say Neville. You eloquently write what we think when broaching the possibility , the risk, the vulnerability of a new relationship. It reads so formally but feels so tenuous and tentative- you convey the fear of rejection so uniquely and so well. An excellent write my friend.
