Writing 101: Reinvent the letter format

A Letter to a girl that I never told how I felt about her.

September 17, 2015

Dear Dilia Rodriguez

It only seem like yesterday that when I first meet you in elementary school.  Third grade if I remember correctly, but it wasn’t until the following year I start getting these strange feelings.  As a young boy I didn’t know how to handle and express these feeling.  It was obvious to our friends that I had a crush on you. They knew it and expressed it one time when we had just finish having recess.

As we grew and went from grade level to grade level I still couldn’t shake this crush bug.  Even though I couldn’t tell you and you never confronted me about it, we were good friends. I wish you did confront me about, it would had made it easier for me.  We move on to middle school where again crush bug surface and I wanted to tell you. As you know growing up as teenage wasn’t easy. I  knew I wasn’t as popular as some of the other boys in school that many girl found attractive.  It was scary and mind blogging to express that I had a crush on you.

We move on into high school. Again we continued to be good friends and has several classes together.  It would be our last 4 years that we would see each other before we part ways and my last opportunity to tell you about that crush that I always had on you and continued to have. I figure that best opportunity to tell you was asking you to prom and sharing my feeling, but you had to leave town. We finished high school and walk the stage, but I never got the chance to tell you how I felt.

Here I am today, hunted by not expressing those feelings.  Only re-surface in my subconscious mind awhile I dream during the night.  Trying to re-live those childhood moment and have the guts to tell you how I felt.


Your friend Mike

P.S. maybe fate will have us cross path again in the future.
