Fire vs. Water

"I'm the devil, you know," she whispered into his ear.

He laughed.  "Hahaha! I could be so lucky," he said.

The heavens they cried while the lake waters roiled.  
The sun burned in the sky and baked solid the earth.

And they danced across it all, stepping on the diamonds that were really the stars.

And she held him close, and he breathed her in.

Until the world fell away and the pit of fire threatened to open up and swallow them both.

Is love a net?
                    Does it have a trap door?
                                                             Will the angels sing as it opens and you fall?

The fire will singe but the water, it will cool,
