It means that if he could fall with her in his arms, it wouldn't matter. Especially if it was a long ways. It's romantic in the truest sense. I don't see how it's in the least bit twisted. It's saying that if the world ends, just let me be in your arms as it's happening.

This is not stating that if there was no God, Crane would need ______; it is stating.. Crane does not care about God or those other things, he just cares that he is with a certain person for a while. A very twisted romantic poem.
