"More than kisses, letters mingle souls."  -  John Donne

It's time for Flash-Fiction again!
Sweet writing evermore- Jenny's prompt is to be in letter form, with 102 words using -
"Dear John"

Dear To Whom It May Concern,

I begin with what should perhaps be written to, well, John
of course.  Albeit the correct thing, presently it may be too

Yes, I could really pour my heart and soul out to, Dear
Waste-Paper Basket, but I prefer you, the unknown,
unnamed person in my book of life.  My muse.  Your chapter
has been quite delicious, and I fail to see you grouped as 
unimportant in my life. 

So, my Dear John, letter will be brief, after this practice to
you, and merely announce, "I plan to marry another."


No regrets.

He's just a better catch!

Ha! This made me think if I have ever written or received a Dear John letter! I can't remember! Seems like the relationships that ended were ended in person, so I guess I've had more Dear John conversations than I want to remember!

Ah--sounds like a rather impersonal relationship best done with!
Nicely written.

Poor John...

I thought I had never received one, but after reading your short response, I must think back to correspondence from former girlfriends many years ago. I probably got dumped a thousand times. Ignorance is bliss!

Strange letter, who writes such a thing in real life, if it would be true?

What a quirky state of affairs.

And what a wonderful letter!

You are always so darned clever.
