The Bar

Confident he wants something, not sure what, I look in his eyes; it's like I've seen them before; like I knew him before; There's laughter touching everything he says, There's music constantly playing inside his head; "I come alive only after dark" he says; All I could think sitting there is here's alot of danger and yet, alot of peace, then my gaze locked on his, and I couldn't think; The one thing after that I remember, and I won't forget is him saying "You miss alot trading a sunrise for a sunset"

I think this is a highly unusual poem. It catches a moment of time to perfection. We must know the same person... “I come alive.only after dark”. Awesome. Wonderful. As a Poet, I come alive only after dark. Although you will find me out today. Love, love the last line as I honestly can relate to that. Give me those might people. Marking this a FAV on top of your site.I You,not trying to impress anyone but you. Individuality always a FAV with me. Pangie
