Waiting On A Hopeful Soul

Written by: iolanda Scripca

 
I confess to you, bartender
Sadness in a sparkling glass
Full of stars with nameless faces
I...??? - Lonely Soul without compass

I pour my heart, you keep the change
I see winter chasing dreams
Wrinkled heart is out-of-business 
Please don't lock the door for screams!!!

Don't mind me for closing minutes
Here and now ...Set the alarm!
Married to a  beautiful facade
Emptiness replaces wing with arm

Bottled "What If.'s?.." labeled , sealed,
Wired tightly, placed underground
I dream of glittered round grapes on vines
I sense my destined still hovering around...
