And how you see it oftentimes is relevant to some information. Or experience. Or hell, even emotion. I guess I'm used to abstract art being less... abstract, hehe.
If your... grief(what I picked from skimming from comments before, condolences if you really lost someone) looks like this in your head, then... cool. I don't know. I work the hell out of my imagination my whole life and I visualize a lot of things(different smells or sounds sometimes), but I guess I'm just not wired to imagining emotion in shapes (:
But yeah, at first I thought it's about two persons standing on a... pier of some kind. Or some other kind of a protruding structure.
when you write a poem about suicide I can not put you together forever and then tell me that is not an incitement to suicide before becoming a writer of poems, you must first think of a proper title to give to a poem that induces suicide having said that I am against the mass suicide and are primarily against the award especially against suicide and suicide among engaged couples to take to avoid ass
Hmmm.... I am disturbed by the suicidal inference here because the title so clearly makes it not about suicide. Not sure why some of you think that... perhaps if you had seen the movie it will be clearer but then again, it is an abstract work so interpretation is loose.

"Due to a malfunction, this freight elevator's rising pretty fast, love. If we don't jump now --possibly to our deaths-- we'll be crushed when it reaches the top, by the upward momentum it's generated thus far.
One of these outcomes is our choice, and the other is not; It's a long way back down... but let's maintain what little control we have left, eh?
Because there is also another movie with the same title by Hong Kong indie filmmaker Wong Kar Wai and that movie is all about love between two men and the difficulties they face but how they still try to make it work. It is a beautiful movie and set in Argentina and one of the objectives of the two lovers is to visit Iguazu Falls, a majestic waterfall.
But they never manage to do so... which is the sad part about the movie.
That is what this piece of art reminds me of... an alternate ending that is truly happy... the two lovers finally getting to the waterfall and enjoying the chance to experience its beauty together, as a couple

Nah, made it up; it's just a random scenario that the piece inspired as I studied it.
The background reminds me of motion lines in a manga, so what we're seeing is in motion. The 'platform' is closer to the top of the image than it is to the bottom so if it was moving downward, that wouldn't be exciting at all, but if it was moving upward, that adds a sense of urgency - being that there's not much room left between the platform and the outer limits of the canvas.
Despite being "Happy Together", the 'two people standing atop the insanely fast-moving platform' must be in dire straits. So what do they do?
1) Stand there and hope for the best while being at the mercy of shitty situation
2) Jump hand-in-hand and most likely die but possibly live
While I don't agree with the act of committing suicide IRL, I chose to go with it because it was the most dramatic option.
