In the darkness of the night
He holds her gently
Running his fingers through her golden hair
She gazes into his eyes.
Her muscles seize, her spine is

Her strength wanes.
The strings of her corset barely rise
And fall with each passing breath.

Her vision fades
Falling into oblivion.
Her last breath
Frozen in time, tremulous

From the earthly flesh that held them back
And float together to the great beyond
To ensure their place together
Away from carnage and despair.
Stripped of human weakness, they’ll finally be
