Just a warm body, to fill the space

I troll the bar
Just another night
A pretty girl
A drink in hand
Looking for a good time
And I'm lost
A shade that haunts this ground
The same old line
Repeated so many times
The bartender has it memorized
" can I buy you a drink, perhaps a little ice..and maybe afterwards, we can do some thing....nice"
And the girl is just drunk enough
And the darkness quite dark enough
And we slip upstairs
And never talk
Sweat with sweat
Sound for sound
Till its done
And I have left
And all thats left to do
Is go for round two.

Amazing! So raw and honest, and the imagery is beautiful, if sad. I love the authors comment too :)
