Sweet Doesn’t Come Without the Sour. It’s a 6.

“I don’t want to die Harriet! I don’t want to die!”

“Calm down Bernard, get ahold of yourself, you’re going to give yourself a meltdown.”

“How can I calm down Harriet when it’s looking like not only am I going to die but you are too, I mean how did this happen, when did this happen?!”

Harriet looked over at Bernard, love revealing his rough edges, the slow deterioration of age that, up until now, she refused to see; in her most soothing voice she said…”Bernard, listen to me – even if we’re both facing death, everyone knows it will be painless, instantaneous.”

Bernard clung to Harriet, she to her Bernard; in their final moments, each felt a gentle lifting upwards followed by a sensation of sudden free-fall and in seconds dissolved into black oblivion as one.

“Hey, honey, I just used the last 2 sugar cubes in my coffee, mind picking up some more while you’re out?”

    we are but temporary confections,
    our greatest worth to dissolve into the pleasure
    …of an un-seen other.
