This song and this picture

Inspired my story:

Mike fell in love with Rose in the 8th grade. At their senior prom he got on one knee and asked for her hand. He told Rose she was the only woman he would ever love.

After graduation they married but Mike wanted more for them and so he took some night classes.

Mike earned his degree and got a good job but it was the night shift. Rose hated sleeping alone.

Mike got off early one night and went home to surprise her. He found her in bed with the neighbor.

Mike shot himself last fall. He never loved another woman.
