"When you're gone, all the colors seem to fade"

Amos Lee – Colors

I rushed through the hallways like a maniac, not caring at all about the consequences; the only thing that mattered to me was lying down on the stretcher I was pushing.

I knew they were going to get me. I could hear their footsteps and loud voices barking out orders to each other, Orders against me. So I turned and turned cutting corners avoiding hitting nurses passing by, and then suddenly officers blocked my every way. I was cornered.

Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep

I had seen this exact moment several times in movies, probably even called it cheesy and changed the channel never really thinking about what it would feel like if it were to happen to me. It definitely wasn't an amusing matter. I went numb. You could stab with a knife right now and I wouldn't even flinch. It took about 10 seconds for it to register into my head that this was actually happening to me. The exact same moment I bent down and put my lips on his, breathing in air hoping to hear short normal beeps from the monitor till I was yanked down on the ground by officers. I felt like the air was pulled out of my lungs, faces spinning above me as they restrained me. But that didn't affect me, not as much as what happened next

Beep Beep Beep Beep

He coughed.

I shot up from the ground and they let me go as Abby gave them a nod, and then I ran to him. The person I didn't even know a few months ago. The one only I could see, the one who was in a coma, the one who was going to die for real, the one who would never open his eyes again. Until now. Words can't possibly describe how I feel for him. For the first time in my life.

I've fallen in love

With a spirit

Soon to wake in his human body

His eyes fluttered open while Abby was sobbing into her hands, and he looked at me, deep in my eyes for the first time as a human.

"David..." I whispered

I saw his face turn into a confused frown as he turned to his sister


"David! It's okay! You're okay everything's okay now!" she tried to talk but couldn't stop crying

I don't blame her, I feel like crying, and I NEVER cry.

"David!" I tried again with a louder voice only to receive the same reaction. Though it made Abby ask

"Dave... It's Elizabeth. You don't remember Elizabeth?"

"I ...

I don't think know you"

That's it.

My world stopped

There is literally no point anymore

All that we've been though

It's all gone

Like a file you made but forgot to save

I walked away

I went home for the first time without him by my side.

And I cried

I moved out while he moved in

Just like the way it used to be

Except I remember him

While he never will
