I hear nothing

except for your breathing,

your heart beating,

and the slow, quiet notes of the song in the background.

I feel nothing

except for your arms around me,

your breath on my skin,

and the gentle thrum of the bass notes in the distance.

I see nothing

except for the purple starry lights,

the flash of random cameras,

and our friends' faces smiling from across the room.

I know nothing

except for the truth of the lyrics,

the feeling of you in all my senses,

and our slow, quiet dancing beneath the stars.


Thank you so much for everything,

For this perfect night under the stars.


a/n: Prom night '09, A Night Under the Stars. No less than everything I had imagined... nothing short of perfect. The lyrics mentioned are from the song "Under the Stars" by And Then I Turned Seven.
