Summer Night City~by Karen King


 

 

Summer Night City

They heard the sirens screeching and the parties pulsing.
The sounds slowly reached through the open window
Of the couple enjoying the summer night.
In their own way.
In their own time.
The smell of barbeques and fiery heat
Wafted through the room as the couple
Turned up their own heat.
They reminded themselves of their touch.
They reminded themselves of their taste.
They gazed at each other as their separate images faded,
Becoming one as the light faded in the room.
The sun slowly set,
The fiery sunset streaking the sky,
Golden, glistening streaks of joy.
The sounds dwindled outside their window
As day turned to night
Whilst their breaths of excitement increased
As all sense of time was forgotten.
The past and future no longer existed
As they gave themselves to the present.
As they gave themselves to the future.
