The Letter

Today’s Writing 101 challenge – to write succinctly about finding a letter  on a path that affects you deeply.

It is a pleasure edged with melancholy to walk though woodland on a misty morning in September. Today the melancholy seemed to seep in from the edges like the ink on the crumpled letter I found beside the path. The writing was child-like in form, a mixture of upper and lower cased letters unevenly spread across the page.

The content was at once child-like and ageless.

“You don’t love me no more. I’m going away.”

Rain dripped from the trees, like tears for all the sadnesses  compressed into those few words.
