The young girl sits on the swing; her heart is heavy; her eyes are swollen with tears. The world as she’s known it has ceased to exist. She will never again know what is to laugh with childish abandon, because her childhood is behind her. Crushed hopes and disappointed dreams will be her constant companions now that the love of her life has flown. She raises her eyes to watch a plane as it soars across the brilliantly lit sky, the sun sinking in the west. Is that the plane carrying away her love? Probably. It disappears into the crimson sun set.
