The thing towered a good three feet above even your father's towering height. The hall was so beautifully decorated: a large red velvet bow hung over the French doors leading to the valley that stood in for a back yard, Cherubs floated above the door ways, playing a silent tune on their quiet strings and trumpets, the golden gas lamps were lit and created a soft warm glow throughout. But was most impressive, what rang the most beautiful in the marble-floored hall was that tree.

I lie in painful reflection
I lie to those who care or not
I lie to myself
Tomorrow I will die
The pain will end
Mine and yours
You say tomorrow never comes
I say you're a fool
Though mirrors never lie
They rarely tell the whole truth
That I once found such in the light
Was that just a dream in the dark
Where day and night are but shades of gray
Where yesterday has no meaning
And tomorrow my only hope
Yes, tomorrow I will surely die
But I'm not dead yet
I'm just sick
I'm just sick

Prussia x Sick!Reader
The hospital walls were unbearably drab.
Staring up at the ceiling, you closed your eyes with a sort of tiredness. You could feel all the machines that you were hooked up to, and it made you feel almost less human. When you first arrived, there had been a little boy in this room with you. His name was Jake, and he was always so very happy despite his sickness. Jake managed to make you smile even after the doctor had given his final diagnosis. How could he be so positive?
And now he was gone.
They had taken him away just yesterday, after a whole night of pain and tears. You were there the whole time, listening as his parents told him that it was okay to go if it hurt too much. You were there for the tears. You were there when the heart monitor informed that there was no longer a pulse.
But it felt as if you were an intruder. Stumbling into an intimate moment like an unwanted visitor.
