The letter written by Captain James T. Kirk to Dr. Alexandra ‘Alex’ Danvers
The letter from Jim Kirk
My beloved Captain
My beloved boyfriend
A letter than has been unfolded
A hundred times
And read a hundred times more
I hear it in your voice
As you caress my cheek
Kiss my forehead
I think of you as you wrote the letter
A letter I will always treasure
As I will always treasure your love
You were always the one for me, Jim
You always will be the one for me, James
Once you get back
I’ll tell you
So that you don’t forget
That there is no Danvers without her Kirk
No Alex without her Jim
And no Alexandra without her James
I keep thinking back. To that night where you came home.
I was in bed, sleeping. I had a fever. The fireplace was lit.
In our cottage. Our cozy cottage.
It was our first home. Like… a real, real home.
I always pictured us having a simple home.
Limited technology, yet enough to not be completely cut off from the world.
Away from the busy traffic, the loud people.
I wish I was awake, by the time you came home.
So that I could caress your cheek,
Asking you to not go into enemy territory.
Would you have stayed, if I had asked?
I keep thinking that…
… deep down, you would have.
Which makes it even more painful,
To have had a fever, being out of it.
The one day I was sick, everything was lost.
That one day.
Yet, I know you better than that.
You would have gone anyway.
”It’ll be fine.”, you would say. ”It’ll work.”
With your grin, faint or not.
One that would reassure me.
That it would work.
That it always works.
And I… would be reassured.
I try to keep strong.
For the Crew.
I try so hard.
Yet I feel weak.
More than ever before.
Sometimes I can’t function properly.
I seclude myself.
In the room I currently call… ”home”.
Everyone is hurting. I can see it, feel it.
Yet I have to try and hide my hurt, my pain.
If I didn’t have Kara here I’d…
I can’t express how much she’s done for me, for the others.
When I can barely function, she makes sure they keep up the good work.
Not as a leader. More like… a caretaker.
While she too, is devastated.
Smiling, trying to spread the sunlight.
Yet is hurting.
Will I see you again?
I miss you, Jim. So much.
I don’t know if you’re even alive.
If you’re safe.
Do you even get food?
I heard your voice.
Felt you. Yet I didn’t know,
If it was a dream or not.
While embracing me.
As I dreamt about you, me.
Our dreams, our goals.
The moment I woke up, it was too late.
Everything was lost.
When I saw the chicken noodle soup,
And the corn.
Our thing. Our very own thing.
Then I found and read the letter.
One I read every day.
So I won’t forget.
How could I forget?
You are my everything.
And you always will be.
For Alexandra Danvers,
Loves her James Kirk.
And she can’t breathe,
Without him close.
It’s kept in a pocket wherever I go.
To then be placed next to the bed.
Always with me.
Just as you are always with me.
In my heart.
In my mind.
There are so many things I want to do.
Please come back.
My beloved Captain.
Apart is Together.
Together is Apart.
The new mantra.
I keep repeating it.
Together is Apart.
Apart is Together.
I love you, Jim.
Now and forever.
I will keep strong for you.
For when you return.
”Am I good or am I good?” To use that against me,
In a teasing way.
I love you.
You were always the one.
You are always the one.
The only one.
For the Danvers.
