Today’s prompt – Conversation
The music was loud, the words were few
I couldn’t find my friends, all the faces were new.
I scanned the room, our eyes met for a moment
She looked at me and looked away, a little hesitant.
The noise was too much, I couldn’t hear myself think
I stepped outside, for fresh air, and saw a vision in pink.
It was the same set of eyes, I had seen inside
I smiled at the woman beside.
Two strangers tired of trying to fit in the crowd,
We decided to go somewhere not so loud.
While the world cheered at midnight,
I admired her pale face glowing under the faint streetlights.
Walking around the city, talking about everything and nothing,
I found the one thing that my life was missing.
While I did not have a grand celebration,
I found something better in that night’s conversation.
