Nothing Lasts Forever (3 of 3)
Age Group: Adult
The dawning sun rises bright.
It engulfs everything in its beauty.
They run through the grassy fields for as
Long as their legs will carry them.
then they fall.
They fall to the soft earth below.
Laughingly they roll through the grass like two children.
They are in love.
They have been in love since the first day their eyes met.
But in the far-off distance lies darkness.
A darkness which has no escape.
While light's escape is darkness,
Darkness has no escape.
The playful children stand,
An icy wind blows their hair about
As night consumes day.
Lightning strikes the clouds aimlessly.
The youths flee in terror,
Holding hands for as long as they possibly can.
Without warning the darkness is silent.
They can no longer see each other.
They are lost forever in a world without light.
Author's Notes: Our couple seem to be very happy indeed. However, in the end the darkness returns. She is no longer able to chase it away. Some have interpreted this to mean that I killed the couple off so as to not have to bring them back in a further issue of this prose. Another interpretation could be that she is just no longer able to make things appear to be so care-free. The "honeymoon" stage of the relationship is over and now certain issues have to be dealt with. Again, I leave it up to the reader to decide which interpretation makes more sense to them.
