A start

I left every thought of grandiose romantic love in a hotel room thousands of miles from home.
I left it there with the letters you wrote me, ripped into pieces and dumped into the bin. I left it there with wishes of more time, of thoughts of staying and with a deep loneliness that would only be removed if you returned.

I stopped dreaming of prince charming, I ended my fairy tale.
And thus begins my story.
