I remember when a smile from Fleur could make my heart skip a beat, stutter in my chest, take my breath away.
But my heart, it don’t beat the way it used to.
I remember when she was the most beautiful woman in the entire world. When my eyes longed only for the sight of her.
But my eyes, they don’t see you no more.
I remember when I lived for her kisses. When just the barest touch could send lust flooding through my body and make me wish to possess her in every way a wizard can possess a wish. Fleur’s lips could inflame me, soothe me, love me.
But my lips, they don’t kiss the way they used to.
I remember when she was my entire world. When all I thought about at work was coming home to her at the end of a long day. When her smile, her voice, the mere sight of her filled me like nothing else ever could.
But now, she’s just a woman. Just another fixed part of my life, unchangeable. Sometimes, it seems like I barely see her even when I’m looking right at her. Some days, I swear I’m living with a stranger.
And my eyes, they don’t recognize you no more.
I still remember.
I just can’t bring myself to care.
