A NEW YEAR LOVE LETTER
By Neel Anil Panicker
Dear Lady Unknown,
Please accept the two flowers that hang outside your window.
You might wonder why two red roses. Well, let me tell you.
The first one is to announce my love for you. The second one is for me.
Confused? Well, let me gain explain.
Unknown to you, for the past one year, I have been secretly watching even following you.
I know some may term it as stalking but what other option does a perennially shy but hopelessly smitten in love person like me have?
The first flower is in remembrance of the day when I first saw and fell in love with you. You can call it my First Love Anniversary gift to you.
The second flower is in furtherance of my New Year resolution which is to be bold.
I have resolved to take my love for you to the next level.
I would now like to come out in the open and declare my love for you in front of everybody, and most importantly would like to lock eyes with you and utter those three magical words.
But for that I need a little push, a wee bit nudge, a small but all important encouragement that will help me to break free from the shackles of shyness and timidity that have been my life all through, and transform into the strong, confident, bold, and charming man that I have aspired to be all my life.
So, here it is.
If you too feel the same for me as I so undoubtedly do, then place a flower of your own, a white lily, next to mine before the sun wakes up tomorrow morning.
If not, please treat this as my first and last ever interface with you.
Let the flowers to wilt if that is their fate.
Meanwhile, I shall await and see what destiny has in store for me tomorrow morn.
