A Dark Embrace

As the sky cracks open
It illuminates two lovers
Thunder roars over their bodies.
Forlorn is the gaze
With which they seek each other.

Within a perilous embrace
Upon the edge of eternity
Their love balances on the chasm.
Dubiety pulling these invisible threads apart.
No longer can they be sure of what’s to come.

Oh, this tapestry of life!
Woven with the fibers of love;
Dyed from the tears of their hearts.
Alas, as everything ends,
The Sun swallows the Earth with alacrity.
Now is it anything but forgotten?
