It's…c-o-l-d in here

What's

wrong

with me?

Caring about…

-my studies

-my parents

-my l~i~f~e

There are those who don't

h a v e

a life to

lead

anymore

Never before have I thought of

maroon&&gold as

But how can I not, now?

I wasn't there to see him

I wasn't there to s e e him…

. . .

I wasn't there to

!SAVE! him…

Three (3) things I feel now:

A throbbing in my e·a·r·s

A pricking behind my e·y·e·s

& a tug(h) along my s·p·i·n·e

I can't stop s/H/a/K/i/N/g,

(*knowing*) he's g o n e

Along my spine—it feels as though

someone's got a good |grip|

& is ready to

PULL!

But I know I'll

.::c o l l a p s e::.

Behind my eyes—it feels as though

someone's stabbing millions of

NeEdLeS

&& they want to watch the flow of my

~tears~&-blood-

at once

But I know I'll go

.::b l i n d::.

In my ears—it's most painful

Someone's…boxed my ears

&& all I can hear is the bell ringing

*rrring!*

*rrring!*

*rrring!*

*rrring!*

*Rrring!*

*RRRING!*

And I'm scared I'll go

—However—

In the noise…I'm able to pick up

((can you hear it, too?))

It's so much more pleasant

than everything else

I wish I could use an

Unbreakable Charm

& box it up around me

Because I don't want to

collapsebe blindgo deaf

If I c o l l a p s e,

I'll worry everyone

which would let down Fred

If I can't see,

I won't move on,

which would let down Fred

If I.

can't.

h e a r,

I won't hear his

twin's voice,

the one so like his…

a voice that could keep me going…

If I tuned it out,

I would

let down Fred

As badly t-r-e-m-b-l-i-n-g as I am,

I know some things…

I miss

&& love(d)

Him

So I'll cherish my

moment · of · silence

but open my ears (not my heart)

to the sounds of

m e m o r i e s

Open my eyes (not my heart)

to the photos in my mind's eye of

& I'll…

stand up

…because Fred loved me when I was proud…enough to face others, &

enough to face him

(with my feelings)

Maybe…I will open up my

some day again,

but my (silence &) love will always

be y o u r s,

;_; Saaad! Dx I just can't stop writing sad things…and Fremione… She basically escaped to the common room to mourn him on her own, because no doubt it was hectic down in the Great Hall following the battle. Merlin…

And yes, there was sliiight Georgemione if you really looked hard enough.

Thanks for reading and please review!
