january: she wasnt ready to be serious with him so she left at exactly twelve oh one on new years day with a few words. he kept saying that this was going to be their year and she just said: piss off.

february: the words still stuck in his head even as he pretended to forgive her and took her back. he feared another painful goodbye.

march: she was never good with saying what she truely meant and he never looked deep into words so when she said "i don't love you." he took it as "i don't love you." and not as "i don't know how to love anyone." which was what she wanted to say.

april: the snow had melted away and they were hanging on by last strings. every day was a question of whether today would be the last.

may: she fell apart when her hamster died and he was there through the whole thing.

june: the death of her hamster silenced her but she visited with him more. she never wanted to be alone.

july: as they watched fire works together on fourth of july, he kept looking over at her wondering when one of them would finally be able to say: enough is enough. it's done.

august: as august rolled around they fought and fought and that was the only time she seemed to speak. every word would come firing out of her mouth and he looked at her wondering when ever did she get so angry.

september: the words came fast and she looked unsure of if she really meant them when she said it: it's over.

october: halloween brought her to his house and she looked at him as if she just happened to be on the street and trick-or-treating there but he knew halloween was just a dumb excuse to say lets make this work.

november: she woke at his house on the first of november, forgetting the night and he said: leave.

december: she mailed him a christmas card, a special one, but she barely noticed when he hadn't sent one in return.

january: he sent a box of things he had collected of hers. she sent a box of his stuff to him. inside she included all the love letters he wrote to her. she had never realized how she loved him until he was gone.
they probably never talked again and he probably got married and had two point five children with a white fence and a dog and she probably ended up on the streets with a man who didn't love her and a baby who was taken away. but that's just a guess.

(i like writing love storys where it just doesn't work out.)

As part of a Found Poetry: Titles as Art project brought to us by =SilverInkblot and found in our new group, #TheTitlePage, I have used the title of this lovely deviation in a poem here:

Treading the Horizon

Thank you so much!

i love the month by month. and it's sad. but after so much romantic fluff, this seems more realistic. and that's okay.

except that he ended up in jail two years later and she wound up being hurt even more by somebody she never thought she'd hold and then she found her savior, hidden in the eyes she'd been seeing for years around corners and lurking in the shadows and she's happy now and she still misses him, but only the close friendship they used to share, once.

this is lovely. so, so lovely.

well that kind of sucks because (i think) he was the good person in this story but maybe he was the bad one sometimes you just cant tell but i guess either way she ends up hurt.

thank you, thank you very much.

Very blatant and to the point. Good job.

i think the artist's comments adds to the story just as much as the story itself. its sadly beautiful.
