I watched as she fell. Fell into my arms. Her tears mixing with my own.
My watery surface dipped and embraced her fragile form.
I felt her lungs gasping for air but nothing could be done now. It was too late.
Once again someone had ridden their life through me.
It's true that I sheltered many lives, but I had shredded many too.
Death was a cruel murderer, while I, his unwilling accomplice.
