Pick Your Own Ending

Feeling optimistic

ALONE IN THE CROWD

Alone in the crowd
I see you there
Half a smile
Braided hair
Skirt worn tight
With heels too high
I watch, you wait
We both know why
Too fast the dance
Too loud the song
The heat and heave
We don’t belong
The crush of bodies
Pressing tight
They look past us
To find the night
I reach for you
From miles away
To pull you close
To seek the day
And find at last
In eyes so blue
The love that called
Me here to you

Or not so much

ALONE IN THE CROWD

Alone in the crowd
I see you there
Half a smile
Braided hair
Skirt worn tight
With heels too high
I watch, you wait
We both know why
Too fast the dance
Too loud the song
The heat and heave
We don’t belong
The crush of bodies
Pressing tight
They look past us
To find the night
I reach for you
From miles away
To pull you close
To seek the day
But find instead
In eyes so sad
The ghost of what
We could have had
