Seventeen seconds after they jumped the world ended.
Torn apart by war, family, fate, they decided
They would rather die together than live apart.
Had they but known (how could they?)
What was about to happen
Perhaps they would have spent those last seventeen seconds together - all the time left in the world
But I suspect not.
They would not want to share their moment with anyone.
They would want it to be theirs and theirs alone.
