Love Letter to a Stranger

by Patrick Bryan

I've fallen in love with someone I barely know. We haven't seen each other in years. Next week, we will. If we consummate our assignation, it will irrevocably alter our lives and my marriage. Though I fear that I will end up alone at the denouement, I proceed unabated towards the abyss. My desire is the villain in the screenplay of my life.

Perhaps your marriage is a joke you've both played on one another and this assignation will prove it. There is no avoiding pain, and there is no avoiding love.

"My desire is the villain in the screenplay of my life."

This is such a beautiful way to portray that weakness that messes up so many lives.

And perhaps, just perhaps they lived happily ever after; but I did always like happy endings and sunshine.
