are you okay?'
a voice soars over the deafening crowd
reaching out to him

so desperately he wants to say

'No, I'm

really not okay'
but he just stays crouched,

next to the amplifier

watching him.

'I will

not kiss you,'
recollections of the past flood his mind
what will never be again

so desperately he wants to say

'Come back

and try for me'
but he won't be a nuisance

he clings to what he has

left of him.

'I'll ask

you to be true,'
each note rings with intoxicating clarity
penetrating his core

so desperately he wants to say

'I would

if you'd let me'
but the silver ring, glinting

on his fourth finger

denies him.
