Ending in Love

He lies there with her,

motionless,

asleep,

dying.

Struggling to hold on to the last fading flickers of his suffering being.

Trying in vain to breathe those last streams of life and purity.

Unable to awaken from the slumber

and gaze upon the last beautiful remnants of the living.

Powerless,

incapable,

but struggling fiercely to take in the final image of his most beloved before

the death,

dark death,

engulfs him.
