How does it feel to be pushed away?

Pretty hard to accept when you know
She loves you and you love her in return...

How does it feel to see her led away for days?
Even months on end, knowing words
Of deceit are whispered in her ears…
Words that tell her to leave you, forever…?

I hate it and I try to give her all the comfort;
In the world when she returns from her tasks
Because I know she would go out there…
To do them no matter what…

And when she throws up walls against your
Advances, does it hurt even more?
Does she separate herself from the world…?
And even more from you, her husband…?

Does it hurt?

Yes, damnit, it does… I… sometimes…
Sometimes I think; she'd better off without me.
I know she could be better…
She might as well be on her own,
The way she carries her life around…
The man mutters in the recording.

The Lady stands up from her seat
and smiles bitterly at the captured image on the holo-vid.
I didn't want to hear this, but I have and I'm leaving… Goodbye…
She says to the empty air as she waits for shuttle.

I didn't want rejection. I ask him to wait for me…
I just did what was right in my heart,
I didn't want him to get hurt…

A man runs out frantically into the
Street as she boards her shuttle.
Wait! He shouts shoving people out
Of his way as he tries to reach her
As she stares at him, sadly the wind,
Whipping her hair away from her face...

Wait and hear me out!
He screams as the shuttle pulls away.
No, she shakes her head as he runs
After the shuttle, you didn't see the full!

He turns around and grabs the hovering car besides him.
He follows her to the bridge, standing over the freezing water.
He runs to her side as she looks out…

…Over the water, on the other side of the rail…
Wait, don't do this… please – he asks her softly.
I love you… She hesitates and motions for
Him to come closer to her; he obeys her wish.

I loved you, too… She says as tears crawl down her face.
Once… before you betrayed me…
No, he cries out and tries to embrace her.
No… I didn't! She holds onto him as she cries.

The rail stands between the two criers.
The snow drifts down all around them as they weep.
She pulls back after an eternity…
Wipes her eyes and smiles at him…
Goodbye… She whispers as she Steps away from the man

…And plunges into the freezing waters and ice below the bridge.
The swift waters and ice carry her away, as
The broken man weeps and screams her name in denial.

He weeps with frozen tears amid the snow and ice.
For she is lost forever; her soul, forever singing
…In the patterns of the river as she cries for him…

She is lost…

No one can find her…

But her spirit lives on…

Forever…

Lost and alone…

As she cries…

…Forever…
