Open Mic

Updated on July 6, 2010

The night is still young

and so beautiful

there are fireworks

flickering the sky

though only in my mind…


the only real thing tonight,

the live band

under the black sky

few people sitting in the grass

me, in a table with strawberry vodka

the straw to my berry is not here…


couple of friends sitting

swaying with the beat

and the night, still young…


candle lit each table

sweet sweet air is here

music, rhythm, lovers, drinks

candle lit each table…


“Sometimes I sit

by the fire and reminisce

about the time we spent in front of it

and that old flame will never be the same

until you come back and rekindle it…”


Wish you were here

hearing my heart beat

instead of the music…


The night is still young

and the straw to my berry

is not around…

      i really like this part... "wish you were here, hearing my heart beat instead of the music" kinda mellow dramatic but so sweet...

      This is a lovely Summer evening image I have here in this poem, there is nothing better than to share that with someone special. I really enjoyed this! It feels a little sad because the person you wanted to be there wasn't there. But it is very beautifully told and so easy flowing, like all your poetry. You write like water gurgling gentle as a natural stream, Blaise. Just lovely! XX

      Strawberry image here works well. It always brings me back to my childhood, remembering that. You caught the atmosphere of the concert here well, and the thought of wishing for the return of someone we love and an old flame even. And so magical when the person does show up, and hopefully not with someone else...
