Raffaele Sollecito is supposed to be Amanda Knox’s ex-boyfriend, but you wouldn’t know it by reading the letters she’s been sending him, the Daily Telegraph reports. In them, the 21-year-old opens up to her co-defendant and thanks him for sharing his feelings with her. “You know what would be wonderful?” she wrote. “Do you think they would let us hug when the judge absolves us? I’m tired of not being allowed to look at you.”

In one letter she writes, “It was good to see you again today. We got to exchange a few more glances than usual.” In another, she composed him a poem in Italian. She also complains about life in jail. “Are you alone in your cell?” she asks. “I’m living with a drug addict, a thief, and an accomplice to murder.” (More Raffaele Sollecito stories.)
