Starry, Starry Night


At dusk the sky 
opens up before us,
we're floating somewhere,
circling forever
on planets and moons.

Gravity feels
stronger tonight, 
pulling us deeper
into each other,
bright lights cast shadows,
darkening our rooms.

No one knows 
what lies beyond;
though someday, I know, 
we'll be going there
soon.
