She had loved him. She still did.

She wished she had told him more, held him tighter, kissed him longer.

But she didn't.

She wished she had kept up the hope that he still loved her, and could become him again. She wished she hadn't tried to hard to keep him out of her life. She wished she had put her walls down, and let him in. She wished she could know if he knew she loved him.

But she didn't.

She wished she hadn't let him leave her. She wished she hadn't let him take the creature into him again, even if it was for the 'greater good.'

But she did.

She wished she had told him then, how much she loved him.

But she didn't.

So now, with him lying in her arms, staring, but not seeing, she kicked herself for having all these regrets.

"I love you." That was the last thing she said to him, as he slipped away. And she hoped he heard her, and didn't think it was too late.

Because she did.
