May Death Be Proud
(the rain is parading today)

It falls and falls and falls.

Theres a rhythm that unsettles me. I shiver, and wrap my arms around me hold me together, hold me. The water falls, it falls, it falls. My hair is wet. It sticks to my skin, irritates me slightly; I ignore it just ignore it.

My eyes are closed, unseeing the rain, but I feel it; I feel the cold, soft drops of rain and it makes me feelit just makes me feel.

A deep breath. It hurts, really hurts. But I have to keep breathing.

I have to keep breathing.

A whisper.

The water keeps falling.

How much time has passed? Time is limited; theres not much time.

The rhythm isnt ending; its going and going and going. Sing in my ear. It does, it does. Its alluring, keeping me standing here the water keeps falling. I want to leave, want to do something. Whats to do? Theres no time left, I know there isnt.

I think Im moving my feet are moving; I must be moving.

Where do I think Im going? Theres no where to go, no place to be.

But I move, and I cannot fight the need to move. My arms are tighter hold me together, hold me. Its been a while since Ive been outside. A long time, a very long time. The war had since taken its toll. Im broken, your broken we are all broken.

The water is still falling.

Im wet and cold, but I cant stay still, cant just wither.

I only just realize that people are around me. They walk around me, they see me; oh God, they see me. What do they see? Never mind, it does not matter.

I want to walk with my eyes closed do I risk it? Time, time, time again. How much time left? Eyes closed, feet still moving. A bump there; Watch it. I think I walked into someone; Honestly!

Just keep walking dont you dare stop walking. Ill be dead within the hour. Steps, steps, steps.

I walk into a deep puddle, Im soaked. Eyes open, I stand still in this puddle.

The water keeps falling, falling, falling.

I feel the tears, they well in my eyes, and before I know it, hot streams flow down my face. Hot, hot, hot far better than the cold. I close my eyes.

Im dying dying, dying, dying. No more time, no more time. I have to wonder who did it who would hate me enough to poison me.

No, thats not rightno one has poisoned me I poisoned myself. Did I? I dont know.

Its cold, though. Cold, cold, cold.

Open my eyes.

Hes there. Hes standing, watching me, right there in front of me. If I reached far enough I could touch him touch him, just reach out.

I open my mouth; speak, speak, speak. Speak while you can.

His eyes watch you, theyre soft, vulnerable. I know I make him this way.

Weak. Im weak. My arms are open now, Im breaking apart my arms no longer hold me together. But before I fall, arms are around me. Hold me together, together, together.

The rhythm is loud now, the beat is against my ears.


The water keeps falling.

Im falling now. No strength Im weak. But Ill do one thing. Just one thing before I leave. His cheek is close to mine as he hugs my body to his. Hes saying hello; Im saying goodbye. My cold lips brush his cheek. Draco.

Falling, falling, falling.

The rain is parading today.
