the movie

surreal to sit in the theatre
waiting for the film to start
afraid of the mirror that might reflect me
wanting to scream "turn the lights down"
not wanting to be seen
but wanting to see you
every song that played
crashing into me like a sledgehammer
surrounded by strangers i've known
who never knew me like you did
double checking every face to enter
had I missed you comIng in
or did fate intervene
worlds colliding heart subsiding
what was it that I'd become
the fool, the liar, the scoundrel?
and then I heard your voice
and for a moment all was right
for a moment
there was sunshine in the night
