In the space between moments

The path of the future seemed so ominously dark,
Clouded by gut wrenching, painful visions of loss.
Splashes of glimmering ruby prematurely left their mark,
As I silently contemplated what our tomorrow's may cost.

As the blackness bled poison into the depths of my soul,
I loathed the heavens above that bound me to such grief.
Time began shredding my world, I felt it scratching below,
And all I wanted was to fade away, to have eternal relief.

The thought of loosing you engulfed my raw, heavy heart,
For I had never known a love so joyfully vivid as this.
Fate had planned us to be as one from the very start,
But I feared the demons of change would destroy our bliss.

Just when the pain had almost smothered my will for life,
The clouds shrouding my vision broke to reveal twinkling light.
A silent song spoke volumes, melting away the worst of my strife,
And I know that whatever befalls us, we will survive the night.

Alwye, Nice job here expressing emotions of deep pain, glad you found survival to be close at hand.

Sometimes we have to follow a stronger voice, even if it's silent.
