Fitting In?

November 2, 2010

She takes a shot,
willing to play the game.
She starts to get hot,
and gets called a dame.

She winks in their direction,
determined to fit in.
Getting wanted attention,
but is caused by sin.

She vents her anger,
behind a revolting mask.
He is a forest ranger,
but she dares not ask.

Discovering her problem,
she breaks into tears.
She acts like a goblin,
looking into mirrors.

He comes around the corner,
going to comfort her.
Walking as if a loner,
about to commit murder.

He holds her crying,
going to never let go.
He is only denying,
to tell what he knows.
