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.

Wow. In a world robbed of God, he reveals what will truly be important to
him. The world stumbling to doom does not seem to matter much -- since it
may very well be the present stage of the world. A world without religion
would indeed seem like a a limitless night to some people, but it is these
white hands that truly matter to him. Then -- somehow -- the black terror
doesn't seem so bad. I'm reminded of a Katherine Hepburn quotation, "I'm
an atheist, and that's it. I believe there's nothing we can know except
that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other."
