Bar Scene

Loud music,
Happy music.
Beer mugs clink together
Sound of laughter everywhere
Faces full of joy
Are they?
A single, solitary figure
Solemn, silently hoping
"See me!
Please God, let them see me!
"Want me!"
Burning, aching loneliness within
"See me! Want me!"
Lovely music
Slowly dancing figures
Holding dreams tightly
A lovely face across the room
"See my eyes, make contact!
See my soul!
See me! Want me!"
Last song,
Last dance,
Last call,
Last hope,
"Please God,
Just this once!"
Dance done
Night over
A single, solitary figure,
Heartbeat resounding
As loud as the music had been,
Through silent tears
