Tattoos and Hearts

She looked at it, after just a matter of weeks it was gone, how could he do this to her?  Didn’t he know she still loved him, she would always love him and had hoped it wouldn’t be too long before they were back together. In her mind they were the perfect couple, young, in love, made for each other in every way. She would have given him the world had it been hers to give. Everyone told her that her first love would be that way they didn’t warn her of the pain it would leave behind.

Her mind wandered back to the first time they had met, they were both out with their friends, there was an instant attraction, he was far more experienced in affairs of the heart than her but they both felt that jolt, that wonderful energy that shot between them and there it began. She was so happy, her life was on track, she had found the love of her life. He met her one day grinning from ear to ear, proudly showing off the tattoo he had had on his arm with her name sitting beautifully on his  tanned, smooth skin, they went out and celebrated. She never thought a human being could be so happy, she would never let this man go.

Three years later she had been savagely dumped. One trip to the tattooist and she had been erased from his life, it had been that easy. She had been left with nothing, he walked away to another life and she didn’t know what to do, how to move on. She had thought it would work out, just a bump in the road along the way but three weeks after they split up her name was gone along with her heart.

  1. Hey Steph,

    Oh the things we do for love when love itself is a madness that either becomes us or destroys us: and our flesh, or so it seems.

    I imagine the owner of the tattoo was in all ways grateful that you were not named, “Red Wacky League Antlez Broke the Stereo Neon Tide Bring Back Honesty Coalition Feedback Hand of Aces Keep Going Captain Let’s Pretend Lost State of Dance Paper Taxis Lunar Road Up!

    Some clouds have silver linings 🙂 Hoping all is swell in the well at the epicentre of the West Country. Take care.

    Namaste 🙂

      • Hey Steph,

        And I happy to see you beam 🙂 Making you smile…is this not what all good Wizards typing from another country do for you on an early Sunday evening? 😉 Do tell me this is the case else I will without question seek urgent council with the Elders respectfully requesting more magic be cast your way by the Brotherhood 😉 How does that sound?

        But first pray do tell, what might thy heart desire beyond all else?

        Ooh, I also meant to ask? How was your day Steph? 🙂

        Namaste 🙂
