It’s late at night,
Both of them have lost the track of time.
The October sky looks magnificent,
The pitch dark sky embedded with shining crystals. .
He asks her “Are you scared of the dark?”
And she just stares at the sky admiring its beauty.
But he could not see anything more beautiful than her,
Though it was dark and he could barely see her face.
Something was bothering him,
Was it her indifference or distance?
Did she really love him?
Or was it that uncanny familiarity that they had shared for years now.
It was not the same as before,
It definitely wasn’t.
But he could not understand why,
May be that is what was bothering him.
