Or Forever Hold Our Peace

I slipped
on a peal of your sweet laughter
and fell 
into happily ever after 
the land
that we know doesn’t really exist
in time
through our mutual love-clouded mist 
We’d see
Through disbelieving tears of wonder 
That we
Could be easily rendered asunder
A kiss
Withheld, a sideward glance
All steps
Taken toward our parting dance 
We held
Each other so very near 
In hopes
We wouldn’t have to hear
Last words
Whispered with bated breath 
This love
Has lived unto its death.
