Summary: Her scent lingers like a ghost on the air
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Her scent lingers like a ghost on the air, like a memory on his pillow.

He wanders from room to room, noiseless as his own voice screams admonishments in his mind.

He can still feel her lips pressed against his cheek - not his mouth because lips means lovers and they are lovers no more - from when she failed to speak the words.

She said goodbye with her kiss, with her suitcase, with her key.

Rain follows her farewell, surrogate tears for a hardened heart.

Don sits outside, lets the heavens loose their downpour on him, waiting to dissolve into nothingness.
