Brent and Ali vs. The World
Moonlight glistens off our glasses as we giggle
And confess. The fountain gurgles contentedly behind us
As life’s mysteries unravel themselves before our eyes.
Outside we take refuge, facing the world in person
While others cower inside and wreak havoc.
The fountain weeps the tears we choke back
As the cool night air soothes any heated arguments
That arise. We’re here because we care more
Than others dare to dream.
Will our destinies ever be secure?
I look through the endless valley to the River of Stars.
