The night cycle

by Mahoobee
Under the starry sky.

Feeling the gloomy night.

You and I,

Are cycling away from our lives.

Out, alone in the dark.

Away from the crowd.

With no air around.

It's just you and me,

Under the glowing galaxy.

You are peddling with such peace.

I rest my head against your back,

For once,

Your heart is telling me,

That now it is in full piece.

The lamp post,

Fails to lighten up our path.

The road ahead seems so like a dream.

With no light around,

I recall all those stories,

My grandmother used to tell me,

Long before I fell into this twisted and distorted world.

In this quite unmoving moment,

You whisper secrets to me.

I envy the stars,

For they must have heard us.

Around us,

There is no sound.

Nothing to be found.

But us,

Cycling through the night.

Under the celestial light.

You pedal so noiselessly,

It makes me wonder,

How beautiful this all seems.

Before morning sweeps in,

We will be far from the town.

Nobody will ever know what happened to us.

They will make up stories.

And pass them around.

Like traditional sweets,

that will soon lose their flavour.

They will never understand us.

Two little birds,

Out in the night.

Finding their home,

Without any guiding light.

There's a shooting star,

I just saw.

I pointed out to you.

But it's a bit too late.

So you laugh.

"Made any wish?"

I shrugged.

"I wish I can learn to love."

He pointed up,

At the cherry tree.

"Love has the flavor of ketchup."

.........

If you are curious why I described love as "Ketchup." It's because love is a bit sweet and a bit tangy. Makes sense???
