One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Dramatic Form

I was in crisis. The situation with the love of my life lingered in the balance, soon to surely solidify or collapse, either outcome better than lukewarm idling. I knew I must immediately write her to win my deserved destiny, but there was too much to say -- I was searching for a concise form.

While considering how to briefly tell it all, I went back to Beethoven's 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th symphonies, the most spiritually aspiring and soul wrenching tribulations with a proven history of yielding answers when lost on my own. Beethoven tells stories as a journey with a development of perspectives, tensions, contrasts, relations, possibilities, attainments, and unifications, like the natural romantic progression unfolding over of a long, strenuous, dangerous, and uncertain mountain hike far from anything familiar or safe. It's a perfect approach for love letters, speeches, and other forms of expression more ambitious than reporting mere data.

So I stole the form of his symphonic movements and my solemn composition fell into place.

1. Introduction: unassuming appearance, establishing themes, ranges, footing
2. Suggestive ambitions and counters: deep views, turns back on itself
3. Renewal, acceleration (celebratory dance of character)
4. Running abandonment recklessly completing its promise

She eventually mumbled some kind of detached, incapacitated, lackluster response. We never spoke again.
