I Can Taste it in Your Tears
By Becca

She hadn't stopped crying since she got home. She walked the carpets, walked the life once shared. Into rooms which held the sweetest memories and now held the pain of remembrance. But she could feel something underlying, a comfort. A feeling of comfort in her time of hurt and pain.

"Hold on to me love
you know I cant stay long
all I wanted to say was I love you and I'm not afraid"

She had lost her but she knew she was safe. She had done too many good things not to be.

God it hurt. She could still feel the last bit of life drain from her lover's body now. But that comfort that was there could still be felt, she could almost hear her lover laughing.

"can you hear me
can you feel me in your arms"

She was here. All around. Her smell, her smile, her very essence.

"Holding my last breath
safe inside myself"

All thoughts were of her lover. How she had made the ultimate sacrifice. Her life for another.

"are all my thought of you
sweet rapture life"

Stolen. Her life was cruelly taken away in an instant. She walked to their bedroom and sat on the edge of the bed. Her body hanging in the balance just like her sanity. She felt a touch and she knew she wasn't alone. Janet was making sure she was alright before she finally left.

"I know you can hear me
I can taste it in your tears"

Janet was here, kissing away the pain.

"Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here"

Time to sleep. To dream of lost love but having the privilege to have loved at all.

She swore she could hear Janet.

"Say goodnight"

"Goodnight Janet." She whispered before the night claimed her.
