to Kim Harrison (author) for expressing (better, and more beautiful than i have ever read before) the feelings of losing of a life partner…

The flames took on rims of blue and green as the rooms laden with pixy dust caught, a funnel of heat making the flames swirl into a spire, as if reaching for the heavens. Jenks fingers brushed mine and took them. Fire cleansed, but nothing could stop the heartache.

“Tears could not be equal, if i wept diamonds from the skies,” Jenks whispered, empty and bereft. “My word silent, though i should howl. Muffled by death, my wings can’t lift me high enough to find you. I feel you within. Unaware of my pain. Not knowing why i mourn.”

His eyes lifted to mine. a glimmer of tears showing. “And why i breathe alone.”

(…from the latest in book in her Rachel Morgan series Black Magic Sanction)
