Letter of Apology

Too sexy for my shirt...

Querida Doña,

I am sorry you thought my being perfect had anything to do with you.

Knowing what you want in the moment – easy.

Being what you want – harder.

Being that just for you – impossible.

Con afecto (pero non todo mi afecto) (soy quien soy, after all),

Don Juan

  1. Agreed: you really did capture this well! It’s a believable “it’s not you, it’s me,” and I think the woman would not easily fall out of love after hearing these words. Maybe she’d try harder.

  2. He’s definitely THE man! Very fun.

    Better get out that Rosetta Stone Cental American Spanish to help figure out “I am who I am.” Something like that.

  3. This was a wonderfully written letter, it felt much longer than 33 words, perhaps because the pauses between spoke so much louder than the letters left behind. Bravo!

  4. HA!

    Is this my husband’s blog? Has he been hiding this from me…Hello, in there? Are you him??? I’ve heard a variety of different versions of this from him, so I was just wondering…

    Well done! LOVE IT!

  5. Wow! A great apology with up-in-the-air resolution. At the end, I felt a slight blow to my stomach. Beautifully written and poignant. Nicely done.
