It took her a moment,
a moment to realise who he was.
It had been a millennium since they had
been so close.
He moved toward her,
gliding and gleaming.
He fought the thunder and the rain,
for his warmth could barely be contained.
His love for her was much greater than
the god’s creation,
he promised to protect.
He fought and walked.
Every step towards her,
meant the slow and steady death
of god’s greatest creation.
He could see destruction,
For his eyes were on her.
God had told them
“this was a reward,
not a punishment”
And for a million years they believed him.
Now he couldn’t see reason.
He couldn’t see why,
He couldn’t understand how,
He was mind-struck by the mere lies god had said.
He walked. He fought.
But then again he walked.
He walked over the human race.
He saw the kids that died.
He saw god’s golden tear.
But all that he really saw,
was his lover at the end if the horizon.
His lover stood there.
She was so beautiful.
She was glowing in the wedding gown,
that she’d sworn never to take off
till they got married.
“Oh soon!”, he said.
He walked, quickening his pace.
Over the years his powers had increased.
“But surely I couldn’t hurt her”
“Oh soon!”, she said.
She’d spent all her life waiting for him.
Over the years her powers had increased.
“But surely I couldn’t hurt him”
And they both finally met.
It was an instant death for both.
As Moon was Ice,
and Sun was Fire.
