Awesome. This is great writing.
Many people think great writing is brilliant ideas, or fancy language, or complex thinking.
No. Highbrow intellectuals are usually shit writers.
Great writing is the simple ideas that people need or want to hear, explained with maximum vividness and clarity... because the purpose of writing is to FUCKING COMMUNICATE.
And that's precisely what you've done a superb job of, here.
When I was coming of age in the early 80s, love songs and radio dedications were hugely popular and stations in markets everywhere ran love song shows. Not sure if organic trend or planned effort at this point.
Found a tape of dedications to my High School GF, she ate it up back then but finding this today gave me a sense of revulsion.
