50 years later, the missing piece of evidence was found.  Lodged in the trunk of a tree, it had remained undisturbed for all that time.  And during that time, an innocent man was put to death, a guilty man was never apprehended, and a community was changed forever.

You were fresh.  All I ever wanted.  You filled my voids.  I was happy.  Momentarily fulfilled.  But then the drudgery of life began; the day-to-day.  Work…obligations… needs.  I was drained until I had no more left to give and before I knew it, you were gone.

You told me to follow so I did.  Even when the path turned dark and I did unspeakable things.

Everyone assumed I had no choice but one was always there. I always choose the path less travelled.  It proves to be most interesting.

Sarah stared up at the blimp.  It floated gracefully across the blue sky and through the clouds.  How did you get such a job?  When do you realize you want to drive a blimp for your career?  What did the driver’s parents think? 

Sarah had always played it safe.  She had wanted to be a dancer.  A tap dancer.  Her parents always told her to get a “bread and butter job.”  Dancing was a fun hobby, not a way to make a living.  Now Sarah works in Human Resources.  She manages health claims and does nothing to prevent her dreams from disappearing into the clouds.

“Honey, they’re just incredible, so beautiful yet so powerful,” Alexa said, undoing her seatbelt to get a better view.

Takes one to know one, David, thought.  Life changing destruction in a beautiful package.  He couldn’t take it anymore.  As the helicopter banked right, he opened the door and pushed her out.

I knew driving up you had gone.  Darkness where you talked of dreams.   Silence where you made commitments.  Emptiness where you promised me a different world.  I didn’t even need to read your note, to know that you are, despite your intentions, nothing but a clown.

You arrived suddenly and unexpectedly.

You were immediately possessive.

You stomped on my heart with your heavy boots.

You left me with nothing but a footprint that will scar forever.
