Gazing through the heated haze
Of the smoke-filled bar.
I gaze beyond the sunshine smiles
To who and what we are.
People, bodies searching
For something more than this;
Some seek it in their altered states,
Some in a stranger’s kiss.
Shallow, shameful reality –
It takes my breath away.
Can I escape this senseless trap?
Or am I here to stay?
I have been a part of this before,
A part of this foolish game.
Why am I drawn here again
To these things so filled with shame?
I know what it is I want from life
And where I’m going to;
I have so much I want to share
Could it be with you?
