St Valentine's Day

The school dance.
Such excitement
Decorating the Assembly Hall
With hearts and ribbons.
The boys lined up on one side.
The girls on the other.
The music starts.
Your heart beats.
The boys advance towards the girls.
You can't believe it!
The best looking boy
The one you like best
Is asking you for a dance....

Years later you ask a friend.
'Whatever happened to Kevin?'
'Didn't he kill himself?' she says.
