A failed love story that takes place within sixty seconds.
One second ticked by- you saw me.
Two seconds- I say hello.
Ten seconds- We’re holding hands outside the Chinese restaurant.
Seventeen- You kiss me under the old oak tree.
Twelve- We spend the day at the beach. You turn bright red under the sun.
Twenty-one- I meet your parents.
Thirty-five- We fight, you throw the necklace I bought you for your birthday out the window.
Forty-two- You’re pregnant
Fifty-five- I come home drunk
Sixty- You leave me
