The Last Note

The last note rings out.

Drifts through the world.

The last note of the last song.

 

He remains seated, bow still hugging tight the fiddle.

A sigh escapes his lips.

Eyes closed his mind leaps back.

Her eyes are bright, devouring the sight of every bird, sea and tree.

His eyes open.

She remains but not as she was.

Colder.

Her eyes no longer see.

She is beside him still.

He takes comfort in that.

Forgiveness was ever an elusive hope, a deluded man’s dream.

The stone above her head tells a tale of Grief.

His eyes gaze out to the horizon.

Flames and ash. Darkness descending. Devouring.

The last note has rang out.

The last note of the last song.

No one to hear it.

No one to feel it.

The last note has rang out

And he is finally alone.
