When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

No barrier tonight

4 Comments

He seeks a girl   
with the diamond edge  
that suspends all routine  

Amelia wears a pleated skirt  
zips up the boots  
goes out for the night  

Swing music at the club  

Tough guy checks her out  
  No strap around her finger  
Tough guy checks him out  
  Enough detail in his face
No barrier

A waterfall of rhythms
Two alcohol units
No magic

Amelia grooves to the beat
glitters and sparkles
She loves to dance

He attempts to approach
She glances at him
He trembles

A drink might power confidence

Amelia wonders impatiently
He smiles at her
She blushes

He suggests going for a walk
She proposes Sunday
The music ends
