Massena, NY USA
Introduction to an environment I rarely exist in.
The heavy smells clog my lungs and cloud my vision.
The range of sounds are very unfamilar.
People all around,
Talking and cohearsing.
I feel out of place with discomfort in my eyes.
I want to be under a patch of stars,
With winter nipping at my neck.
And then I sense something.
I shift my head to find this change.
My eyes scope out the room.
Everything else shuts down.]
She sits with such poise.
I watch as her own world entertains.
No outside distraction affects her motionless soul.
I gaze and wonder what would bring her eyes to mine.
I draw a blank.
I must turn away.
A song plays on the radio.
I stand and listen.
My lips correspond to every word.
I turn back to this girl who has captivated me.
Her lips move as mine do.
A smile forms widely on my face.
And for this moment, that one moment,
Hope thrives inside of me.
