Today I was informed that someone is posting my writing on My-Space and claiming it as their own. The writing on Love Letters, with the exception of two poems published under my given name and protected by copyright, are my deepest heartfelt thoughts to someone I love.
There have been a couple of pieces on there that were not my own, love stories put in to fill the gap when I can’t find words. In those cases I have cited my sources.
While I’m flattered that someone finds these letters so inspiring that they wish to use them as their own, these came from my heart and soul and I can’t help but feel a bit violated.
Looking for what is in your own heart and soul can take some time, or perhaps the right person to help you find it. It took me many years to find this person. You can take my words, but they will not bring you the love that I feel.
