Darkness making love with the sky,
Visions at the night she escapes for distractions,
Away from her demons,
To whom only in the end did she give in,
When she fell into darkness she found beauty within it,
She realized that it wasn’t so bad after all,
And she didn’t want to shut her eyes, away from the vision,
That was the darkness that consumed her.
He sucked in a breath as he reached the top of the cliff,
He gazed at the sky,
Intoxicated by the overdose of its beauty,
At that moment the sky looked so vulnerable,
So powerful and unyielding
He spun around and saw the other half of the sky where darkness was embracing the city,
He lay down and let his thoughts take over him,
He didn’t care, at that moment.
She cried herself to sleep always,
She felt numb,
All she wanted to do was run
Scream out loud,
That’s exactly what she did
At one point her muscles ached so much in protest,
That she had to scream out loud.
He heard an echo of a scream from afar and smiled to himself
At the differences in the world,
At the beauty of it,
He continued to gaze at the burning sky
And let a tear fall out,
Not because he was sad,
But because of what lay above him
He heard footsteps approach him
Saw the silhouette of a woman.
She saw a man lay on the rocks
Gazing at the sky,
She saw the movement of his head
And gasped when she saw his face.
He sucked in a breath with as he looked at her face
As he took her in
She looked the same
She looked so different,
He stood up to make sure that that he wasn’t dreaming and he walked towards her,
As though she might run away,
If he might walk too fast,
It was her.
He walked towards her
She took in his familiar face
Is this real?
Before he could come closer,
She did what she thought best,
She ran away,
It was him.
The Meticulous Button.
