Dancing

Offbeat sways.

Smiling

Careless thoughts.

Like a teenage,

Headstrong,

Love-sick girl

Before dreams.

A heavy-metal,

Rock artist

Lost in the music.

Smell the bitter

Scent of beer.

Hear the jaded voices

In conversations

On subjects that

Hold no interest.

Feel apart from

The childhood home

That's always been there.

Alone in the world, now.

All grown up.
