I have given you what I have never before given

“This is what I would like before leaving for America. To be so worn out, so filled with love, that I cannot make love any more for months but await my marvellous return to be with you again like your little pet dog.”
– Edith Piaf to her married lover, the cycling champion Louis Gérardin

Now that’s a love letter.
