Like We Never Loved At All

You never looked so good

As you did last night

Underneath the city lights

There walking with your friend

Laughing at the moon

I swear you looked right through me

But I'm still livin' with your goodbye

And you're just goin' on with your life

It was the first time I had seen you in nearly six months, since the day I came home to find all of your things missing from the apartment we had been sharing for the last 2 years. You looked as beautiful as always. I nearly gagged on my tea when I saw who was by your side. It was the Weasley girl. You had left me for a Weasley! I felt tears prick the corner of my eyes when she pointed me out to you and you both started laughing at something she said. Then you both moved on and continued with what you were doing after she threw me a smug looking smirk and once again laughing. For the briefest second I almost thought I saw sorrow and pain in your eyes but then it was gone.

How can you just walk on by

Without one tear in your eye

Don't you have the slightest feelings left for me

Maybe that's just your way

Of dealing with the pain

Forgetting everything between our rise and fall

Like we never loved at all

I sat there for the longest time wishing you would come back and talk to me. I wonder if you even still care for me or if you ever did care about me. I guess that's just your way of dealing with the pain of everything. That's how you dealt with Dumbledore's death and your defeat of Voldemort. You just moved on and never looked back. Its almost like we never loved at all but I know that can't be true. I have the proof that we did love each other laying here on the couch beside me. She's a beautiful little thing too. My blonde hair and your green eyes. She'll be a heartbreaker some day.

You, I hear you're doin' fine

Seems like you're doin' well

As far as I can tell

Time is leaving us behind

(Leavin' us behind)

Another week has passed

And still I haven't laughed yet

So tell me what your secret is

(I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know)

To letting go, letting go like you did, like you did

I picked up the paper this morning and nearly choked on my tea yet again. All over the front page were pictures of you and your new fiancee. You were planning to marry in a month's time. I sat and stared at the pictures for a while and noticed that they only had one current photo of you and Weasley. Your eyes looked so dead in that picture and then again I thought I saw a flash of pain and sorrow before they again went dead and a fake smile slid over your features. I am probably the only one that would be able to tell that your smile wasn't real. None of your friends were able to see behind your masks.

I was there at your wedding, you know. You never saw me, but that's all right. That's how I wanted it. You were all smiles and giggles. You seemed truly happy and that hurt more than anything. I wish I knew how to do that but it's hard for me to let you go. Everyday I look into our beautiful little girls eyes I see you.

Did you forget the magic

Did you forget the passion

Did you ever miss me

Ever long to kiss meeeee...

Please tell me how you managed to move on knowing that we were bringing a child into the world. Did you not want to deal with a child at the time? You seemed ecstatic when I told you the news. Have you forgotten about us here in this cold manor all alone now? Did you forget about the love we shared and the passion we used to have? Do you miss me at all, the way I miss you?

Maybe that's just your way

Of dealing with the pain

Forgetting everything between our rise and fall

Like we never alllllll...

Another two months has passed and your once again in the papers, this time announcing the birth of your first child. This time there are no pictures of you at all, just the expectant mother. Then my eyes catch something at the very corner of the picture. Your head poked around the corner and you see the cameras and your wife and you merely shake your head, your eyes once again dull and lifeless. That's when I finally remember something you had once said in jest but now I wonder how true it could be. You had said that the youngest Weasley had such a crush on you that you thought she might even go as far as using the imperious curse to get you. Now I wonder if it could be true.


This will have an epilogue/sequel to it, probably posted within the next couple of days at most.
