Summary: I felt him die.
A/N: I love the Phantom of the Opera. Too much.


I fell on my knees as pain raced through my heart. A part of me was brutally taken away, my heart was torn out, and in the sudden emptiness, pain howled like some untameable beast. I was shivering, shrieking and almost screaming with the hurt, and Loz watched me stunned with his tear-filled eyes, but I didn’t care.
I felt him die.
Suddenly, through the burning droplets of rain I heard something, something becoming clearer and louder by the minute, until I could make out the faint, familiar words. And the song just went on, singing comforting little lies of daylight, freedom, safety and everlasting love.
I remembered how I used to hold him in the darkest nights, how I used to rock him until in my arms, how I used to kiss his temples, how I used to breathe in the sweet scent of his silver hair, how I used to sing him the song…
No more talk
of darkness.
Forget these
wide-eyed fears,
I'm here,
nothing can harm you,
my words will
warm and calm you.
Let me be
your shelter,
let me
be your light.
You're safe:
No one will find you,
your fears are
far behind you...

The way he slept in my arms, trusting, peaceful. The way he smiled, cocking his head to the side. The way his gloved hands used to toy with my hair…
And I’ve just felt him die…
