Mi No Se Mencionan

Poetry by | August 2, 2009

the flickering lights
allow a momentary glimpse
on the sea of unfamiliar faces

his eyes, utter innocence,
his smile, wicked.
this stranger
touched my face
and i knew–
it was he I had been
warned about.

he hides and lingers
leaves and stays —
in the darkest of nights, he plays
with someone’s heart,
between someone’s legs.

he made me see.

and the next thing i knew
he was gone.
