    they looked into each other’s eyes
    and saw love
    perhaps if they had looked a bit harder
    that would have noticed Death
    lurking there as well
    it wouldn’t have mattered
    because when you’re young and truly in love
    Death has no substance

    I am writing a novel (Romance) at the moment that is entirely written along this vein, the characters also have no names… maybe I should share a small segment.
