That Fall

Location

The wind on her face

 

The slight retrace; of what once was.

 

The warmth of his cheek

 

The breeze of the air; forever there

 

A whole life time passes in a minute

 

Yet it never seems long enough

 

The darkness forever inclosing

 

The light returning at dawn

 

Knowing what can not be forgiven

 

She runs faster than before

 

Not letting her breath catch her

 

She soon gracefully falls

 

He sprints to go and save her

 

The tragedy in it all; the silence of the moment

 

The season that is fall

 

With one last glance

 

They know the truth of it all

 

They were in love; but could no longer stall

 

She fell asleep in his arms

 

He tried to wake her; tried it all

 

She could not be woken; nor the trees of the fall

 

She slowly died beside him; and so did his heart -that fall
