Eve of Eternity

She couldn't contain her rhapsody demeanor much more hugging her husband and gushing with excitement as he closed the door the third class cabin was modest but she thought it would do finally spending time together in this steerage cabin room After dining together and playing cards with some other passengers they retired to their cabin and did some reading till their eyes tired then they spooned together in the darkness of the room and made passionate love being they were on their honeymoon Sound asleep till they we're abruptly awaken by a violent jarring finding out from people running about it was from an icebergs scarring throwing on their overcoats they we're thrown two lifejackets and fought their way up to the top deck amidst all the panic Their weary eyes saw the last lifeboat being lowered down to the ocean many brave men staying behind waving trying not to show emotion the newlyweds hugged each other while their faces wept about to go down with the ship into the fathomless depths They held hands while trying with all their might to hold on and grip as the ship rose up perpendicular making them and others slip the ship now offered nothing but quietus to the passengers on board as they both plummeted in slow motion down to the ocean floor Some survivors in the Titanic lifeboats watched with pitiful awe while others who lost loved ones lost control and bawled the ones who lost many possessions tried not to show too much enmity while the newlyweds love story would last for all eternity. 3-18-18
