This is, like, really moving.

Because I'm watching it yet again. Because it needs to be said. Because no one should think that Browning or Shakespeare or Mr. Big in the "Sex in the City" movie say it any better. The best love letter ever written just might be the one Brian Krakow wrote (via Jordan Catalano) to Angela Chase on the brilliant "My So-Called Life."

For your reading pleasure:

Dear Angela,
I know in the past I've caused you pain, and I'm sorry. And I'll always be sorry till the day I die. And I hate this pen I'm holding, because I should be holding you. I hate this paper under my hand because it isn't you. I even hate this letter because it's not the whole truth. Because the whole truth is so much more than a letter can even say. If you wanna hate me, go ahead. If you wanna burn this letter, do it. You could burn the whole world down. You could tell me to go to hell. I'd go. If you wanted me to. And I'd send you a letter from there.
Sincerely,
Jordan Catalano
