    Summary

    It's cloudy, and slightly viscous when he touches it with the tip of his finger. The tea light flickers and he watches entranced as it bubbles and fizzes. He sucks it into his needle, and looks to Sherlock.
    Sherlock stares at him. "Well?"
    And that's how he knows this isn't his Sherlock, but it helps to have him around, and this is the easiest way to ensure that he never dissolves. This hallucination is keeping him sane, and if he has to drown in drugs to keep him, then so be it.

    John copes. He's fine. He's dealing with it.

    Summary

    A short series of the texts John sends to Sherlock after the fall. With his best friend gone John feels betrayed and alone. He lives with this for three years until he just isn't sure how he can continue.

    Written on a whim late at night while listening to Michael Jackson's "Don't Walk Away"

     

    "See I just can’t find the right thing to say
    I tried but all my pain gets in the way
    Tell me what I have to do so you’ll stay
    Should I get down on my knees and pray

    And how can I stop losing you
    How can I begin to say
    When there’s nothing left to do but walk away

    I close my eyes
    Just to try and see you smile one more time
    But it’s been so long now all I do is cry
    Can’t we find some love to take this away
    ‘Cause the pain gets stronger every day

    How can I begin again
    How am I to understand
    When there’s nothing left to do but walk away

    Even though I had to let you go
    There’s nothing left to do
    But walk away"
