A Bohemian Night Life

Rating: 4.5
Sitting quietly at a table in a corner bar
With his pride tarnished and a heart broken,
His mind seems to be gone away very far
But he is ready to release his words unspoken...

Covered by cigarette smokes in the air,
While a piano is being played in the background,
He lifts up his face full of tears...
Starting to write words without sounds...

He asks for a soft drink to the barmaid,
And concentrated writing a new poem
He realizes that for his wound, there's no band-aid
Since his life has taken a new form...

Suddenly, a flower girl stops by
Asking him to buy some flower
He felt like a bird that can no longer fly
One with broken wings and no power...

That bird was really me, indeed!

You've painted such a credible scene here. I feel like I'm sitting close by soaking up the atmosphere. The juxtaposition of the broken wings and the flower symbolizing freedom are well placed. I hope you choose the flower.

It seems there is a great disappointment involved. One can feel the weeping. We must get up and start again-or life is meaningless. Overcome lonely times with all the things God will provide. Ask for the answers. It is another good poem with discriptive value. Go on with your gifts and try to keep the writing warm & peaceful - for now! Wonderful work. Michele Kostelnik Parrillo
