Laughing wholeheartedly and recklessly staggering while embracing each other like inebriated college students,
they made their way back to the couch . And in a way they were; they
were drunk on emotions. Emotions they had physically been deprived of
for so long; ones that had been incarcerated, locked in the
individual letters on keyboards and cell phones just waiting for their
release. Wanting to drink up the night-all night- indifferent about a
hangover, they reveled in the toxicity of it all, allowing the freedom
deserving of their desires to take over.
they wanted to deny the realities of time, they were both conscious of
the all-too- limited moments left. With just a dim light coming from
the kitchen and an assortment of selected music playing quietly in the

him, as she too had never felt so free: not wanting this ride to ever end.
it may be difficult for an astronaut to define and describe all the
adventure and pleasure of what it is like to see the moon up close and
personal, neither could words of description define what was happening
as they experienced each other up close and personal. "Space" had been
an excellent educator for the enterprise they were undertaking. Only
for them, a one-way experience was their ticket to a place of no
return. At least never again as they had known it.
