I waited underneath the tree for a while. But whilst I waited, I lit up and thought about the little things. The small kindnesses which made me love him and those meagre moments of pure hatred, over inconsequential things which drove me insane and resulted in the prompt end of our love affair. It was beautiful while it lasted, glorious in fact. I think we imagined no one else could ever feel the way we did. In actual fact history is littered with tragic figures that climbed mountains or jumped off them to prove their love and amorous affairs which moved armies. Ours was a less dramatic undertaking, but no less fantastic. Someone once said “Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop” much like a tree that ends its days in a pile of ash blown away with the wind. He never showed up. [Cecilia Garcia]
