In the end

I knew I it was gone.

The fingers

that played the song ended flat.

The soundless note

hanging in the air

above my eyes.

With fingers extended

I reached out and grasped

that note holding it tight in my hand.

“Will I ever have you again?”

I whispered to the note.

It vibrated and zinged in my palm,

hopeful but lifeless.

I squeezed it again

tightening my fist around the little note,

Wishing it would give me

an answer more promising.

Like a double-bladed sword

it gave me the answer

that penetrated my heart.

Shattering it

the way it did

when her soul took one last breath.

Opened mouthed

in a silent scream

the note vanished

to never be heard again.
