Interesting question, said I as I thought
about the story. I would like to know,
if this was an old romance or an
abandoned love show of a quick encounter.
I needed to find out. It was driving me
towards an uncertainty. I looked around
the room and saw a small wooden, lacquered
box on the fireplace mantel. The bare wood was
showing through one part of the box. A light
coat of dust told me it hadn't been looked at for
awhile. I opened the lid and found two faded
photos. A young woman and a young man.
The man wasn't the same as the picture on the
wall. Was this a love triangle that had gone astray?
An unrequited love between two men and the woman?
Three lost souls? How sad it was. I saw a folded paper.
I looked and found this: "I love you more than I can say,
but you left and went away as my confession to you was
unsaid. It's all I can say. I will wait for you forever and a day."
A failed romance or manage de trois?
This is all I have. A lost love of 2, or 3?
What a sadness I now see,
a love that was never to be.
3 lost souls gone away,
perhaps, an unfulfilled tragedy.

Not sure about a book. I wrote the second part after reading your remark on part 1. Thank you for the nudge.
