A love letter sent to late

Paris called, and I answered with a hungry voice. I was just about starving when the sweet smell of croissants, macaroons and perfect café au lait filled me entierly with its warm and comforting sent. Chloé held me close, took my bag and told her driver to take us to a dark bar as fast as he could. Ten minutes later, dress change in the car and heels on, we were sipping perfect plum wine and wearing masks. Men came and went away again when we didn't respond to their bonsoir. We had eyes for each other only. Laugher lived next door to tears, in the same zip code as disaster and we loved with our hearts beating like one that night.

I'm sorry I left you all without a word, without a trace but sometimes my words run out. Like the hot water in Chloés apartment. And then you have no choice but to stay warm with wine and red pall malls instead. I hope you understand. But I've gathered some strength here while walking the streets of Paris. I wish I could have brought you all with me.

oh my word, if you are still there you NEED to visit the garden in musée rodin!

I am glad you are gathering strength. Paris saved me too sunshine, I spent last summer there are it was the best summer of my life.

So keep having fun, we will watch in th distance, and when you want to and when you have the time to drop by, we will be waiting with open arms and smiles xxx

Words run out with me too, a change of scenery is always good for the soul.
