Election Night 2008 - Poem by aurin squire

Pulled car over and wept till my chest hurt.
Ohio's starless night covered my face.
His voice poetic majestic asserts
the darkest night set us off into a new place.

In the Hilton Ballroom covered with screens.
Screams, fists, backslaps, election beers, and tears
Ecstasy overwhelmed, slipped out unseen
Drove alone gone to emote without fears.

Fist pounding the wheel as news kept rolling
then talking to myself, coaching my smile.
Cut to Hyde Park and tears started flowing
and didn't stop, didn't stop for miles.

Returned to party nonplussed by surprise
Only betrayed by my swollen red eyes.
