The Importance of Punctuation II

There's more than one "right answer", but here are two versions.

The love letter:


Dear John,
I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we are apart. I can be forever happy - will you let me be yours?
Gloria

The ending it letter:

Dear John,
I want a man who knows what love is. All about you are generous, kind, thoughtful people who are not like you. Admit being useless and inferior. You have ruined me. For other men I yearn. For you I have no feelings whatsoever. When we are apart I can be forever happy. Will you let me be?
Yours,
Gloria

Really good exercise, thanks for posting! I tried it in my head yesterday before looking at the answer.

It's fun, isn't it!

Very clever! I actually sat down and wrote it all out. (Sad that I am!)

Not sad at all, a dedicated writer I'd say.
