Götterdämmerung Part 1

      Author's suggestion - goes best with as you read.  Don't forget to continue to "Götterdämmerung Part 2"

He sees her in his thoughts his dreams
Haunting long after he wakes, writes reams
Yes, she's always there, so fair
carrying on his hopes, despairs

Together they were glorious, a match
Apart he creeps, just newly hatch't
A match made of steel and fire and forged
Now he stares at fate, a long-drop gorge

They clashed and sparked and were hell bent
They were but life, rage, magnificent
They roared and screamed as they strove and loved
His confused anger, her cold sweet dove

We gloried in their fury, tempest
We knew it would come, only held our breath
They heard it not, only held cool hands
As they carved a world in their quicksand

It took a year to build it, a bulwark
An empty beach where two gamboled, a lark
There they resided, two titans beached
And there they loved, far from others' reach

One more year they stayed, unmoved, unmoving
They lambasted and fought, strange portrait of loving
Laughing, crying, helpless, sobbing
They clung to love, while hearts beat, throbbing

Sniping, diving, swooping, reaching
Embracing, soaring, cringing, seeking
Dragging, pulling, swelling, creeping
Surging, pushing, shrinking, leaping

They set about them the limits, the bounds
In arrogant splendor, claimed all around
In their kingdom they ruled, dictated
Two Sullas Proscripting, in love with their hatred

They raised their hands and shouted their joy
To thrust all away, to embrace dark cloy
Their eyes flashed as one, they clasped in glee
Their lives were perfect, thence did light flee

....Continued in "Götterdämmerung Part 2"
