    Oscar Wilde’s Stirring Love Letters to Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas


    “It is a marvel that those red rose-leaf lips of yours should be made no less for the madness of music and song than for the madness of kissing.”

    THEN:
    "Your sonnet is quite lovely, and it is a marvel that those red rose-leaf lips of yours should be made no less for the madness of music and song than for the madness of kissing. Your slim gilt soul walks between passion and poetry. I know Hyacinthus, whom Apollo loved so madly, was you in Greek days."


    NOW:
    "'Sup."

    I'll use this for my next Grindr greeting:

    "I must see you soon — you are the divine thing I want — the thing of grace and genius"

    and if I don't get the response I want, there's this:

    " I cannot listen to your curved lips saying hideous things to me — don’t do it — you break my heart "
