Vanished, you and me.
We’ve abandoned our lives
To escape for a night,
Out into a field of darkness
Under the moon and her stars.
We give in to our passion
Upon a blanket of wild grass.
For a moment we gaze into the heavens,
Overtaken by the vastness of space.
Our sweet throes are accompanied
By the chirpy ballads of crickets
And the warm, whispering whoosh
Of a summer night’s breeze,
Which caresses the canopies
Of the nearby willow trees;
We retreat to their shadows
Once the open cools down,
Resuming our rendez-vous while
The moon peeks in at us from the sky
And the fireflies entertain us
With their illuminating tangos.
