We gazed out at the skyline

As sunset encompassed us

The words on the tips of our tongues

Were like

The night sky

Full of the promise of glimmering stars

Attempting to kiss the fading light

A hopeful improbability

An intimate shyness

Like her hand brushing mine

A brief quickening of pulse

That paints the sky 

In vivid shades of longing

Only to quietly slip into the gloamimg

She licks her lips and like a mystery says

And you have been driving
