He looked at her strangely unwavering eyes and knew it was time to go; to never regret.
"I have to go now, Goodbye..." The heaviness in how he said her name was so evident. It weighed on his brooding shoulders like a pile of boulders. She understood because the same weight was resting on her chest.
The gravity of it finally became too much to bare and her tears flowed unrestrained as he faded into the dark.

Truly bitter. Truly sweet.
