This “poetic tale” which I created for Honors English class senior year of high school makes me giggle. It’s very dramatic! My 17 year-old self must have been drawing from the many episodes of “General Hospital” that I had watched since childhood.
I remember writing this and feeling a bit disconnected from the main female character. She is very focused on finding a man and capturing his affections and although I cherish romance and love, at the time I knew my life needed more individual growth before I was ready for a forever partner.
Also, what a depressing ending! I won’t ruin it, though… check out my tale that was created from the psyche of Brandy in 1999.
