You’re Only Someone That I Used To Love

“It’s like this.”

“Exactly like this.”

“He left his tripod.”

“We don’t know where he went.”

“His camera’s there. But not the memory card.”

“We know nothing.”

“But he was your friend?”

“Uh, no. An acquaintance.”

“On our mother’s side.”

“A distant one.”

“And he was photographing?”

“The mountains?”

“A bird?”

“The last butterfly.”

“So, none of you know why he was here?”

“He hated.”

“He was in love.”

“He wanted a picture of a monarch.”

“Who are you ladies, again?”

“I’m no one.”

“I’m his best friend.”

“I was someone else.”

“Who else were you?”

“Someone he loved.”

      • Oh gosh no. I even wrote an article for a freelance project comparing aspects of MidSummer and Much Ado. So, I’ve even reread it everything, but no ideas. You? Btw work and a course I’m taking with an assignment every day, its been tough to keep up. What makes Midsummers so hard is the lack of main character. Puck is sort of the main character in the play, but really it’s a montage of three or four different stories overlapping, and there is meaning there. But what might work best is to take one story, day about the 4 lovers, or to make a more complex story btw Oberon and His Queen Titania, then again, parts of these stories are very reliant on each other
        My thoughts so far, I don’t know when these are due even?

      • Anne said at the end of March. I haven’t reread yet although I had an idea from what I remembered. Of course, the idea hasn’t quite worked itself into words. Procrastination is my first name….not even my middle. 🙂
        You sound so busy!

  1. I love the structure of this, the snatches of a person and their life we learn from disconnected sentences. Their disappearance is a confusing jumble and you’ve conveyed that so well. Great mystery Sascha

  2. Interesting, this piece, Sascha, attempting to picture the scene, and who might be talking. Kind of poignant, especially the symbolism of photographing the unreachable. I found an underwater camera on a rocky outcrop by the sea once. Perhaps the owner was taken by a shark. Great camera though.😜

  3. The dialogue is confusing, but it fits the ex-love theme. I love that he didn’t leave the memory card. Kind of sad. And finally, there is something not right with the two characters. They seem guilty. A unique style of writing, well written too.
