lookout

At the top of the deserted building

the surrounding towns are spread out beneath us

like a toy village display at Christmas time.

There’s a train that circles the cluster of cities,

a star up above a nearby mountain that illuminates the nights,

and miniature cars full of miniature people driving through the miniature streets.

The glow of the distant lives reflects in our eyes

as the moon shines down on our shoulders

and the gentle wind wraps us in a cool embrace.

My favorite part of this moment is not how close you are to me,

or how the midnight sky is covered in constellations I’ve never seen before,

but the still silence that falls around us.

We are enveloped by a bubble

protecting us from the chaos of life

creating a comforting safe haven, a place to breathe.

We are on top of the world,

our own little world,

together.
