Happy birthday to this beautiful and magical goddess right here, a classic Hollywood starlet who exists comfortably in multiple eras, which makes me feel like life only dropped her in this one solely for me to love her and to be loved by her.
Melanie is my everything. Her influence and essence and love and support infuses all that I am and all that I share every single day.
She is my twin soul sister and is probably the only person the planet who will ever know the full contents of my mind, heart and soul. You only need one.
As Aristotle once stated, “Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies,” and this is how I feel about us.
What I share with Melanie exists on another plane, and I feel so very lucky that we are sharing the same space in time, and that we’ve been blessed with a decade of such a decadent friendship, with many more soul-filled decades to come.
Beloved friend whom I would never ever want to live without, I wish you another year of you being magnificently you, a super snuggly and adorable first full year with your handsome kitty, Severus, and I selfishly wish for more endless daily conversations that give me everything that I need to be able to exist in this world while still being me.
You are the most extraordinary woman and friend I could have ever dreamed up, and I pity those who will never get a chance to know you like I do, or have a friend as special as you. They are truly missing out on the most tender and affirming experience of life.
I wish I was there to dine with you like we used to do, and celebrate your existence that always feels like the biggest, coziest, safest hug, but for now, and until your gift arrives, my words are what I have to offer. And in front of everyone, as always, because the world should know just how incredible you are.
I am so, so glad that your soul chose mine. Here’s to you, mon chou.
All my love, forever and always, and even longer than that,
Your greatest fan and admirer,
(FYI: Since Melanie and I are in different provinces at the moment, I’ve chosen this picture I took of her on my pretty couch back home, which is now being enjoyed and laid upon in her pretty home)
P.P.S. If an erotic, poetic, insightful and vulnerable real-life fairytale is your kinda thing, I invite you to explore my soul's offering, The Poet & The Butterfly Collection.
