I am working on a verse story which is not complete yet. What I want is some comments or advice to make it more appealing. So I am posting it here in a form of series. Enjoy.
IN THE BAR
I knocked on the counter in threes
Once, twice, thrice
Inward the bar was quiet
Dark and lifeless.
The benches were dead.
I heard footsteps
It was a boy about ten.
Can I have a bottle please.
We have closed.
A friend is celebrating his birthday.
I want to suprise him.
The time is ten. We have closed.
I am just one person.
I am buying a bottle. It would not take long.
My mother would be back soon.
I will sleep with marks if she meet me selling.
His expressions especially the face was begging
But the bottle I also needed.
I can't help you.
He turned, living, but
Grab! I had his arm in my hand.
He looked. Suprise
Spelt his eyes.
I know what to do.
Wait. What is your name?
In hand bag,
My hand ransacked
A red note.
I pressed the note into his hand
I folded that hand.
Please get me that bottle.
Two forces battled in the boy
I could feel it
As his eyes stared.
I kept looking into his eyes.
What do you want?
One of the strongest you have got.
Which one. They are many strongs.
You choose for me.
I saw him dissappear
In the dark ahead.
And as I stared I was lost to the present and found in the
I was resting my body since lectures wrere over.
The time struck 8: 30 pm. Feeling quite bored,
I decided to see Frank. He stayed not on campus.
It was a matter of foot works and not vehicle wheels.
So I sneaked like a snake from my room and into
The lighted town.
By 30 min time I was on Frank's compound.
Please is Frank in?
The house I invaded and climbed upstairs.
I knocked the door in quick threes.
Once, I waited, waited, waited
Twice, waited and waited
Thrice I waited.
If Frank must be asleep these should wake him up!
Or, What is happening?
Click, click, click
How can I help you?
