Hangover

The lights went off at midnight. They didn’t wait up for me. I slept alone on lush green grass. Dirt on my once rosy cheeks. My heart stopped. Life went on. Didn’t miss a beat

The lights went off around midnight. He was waiting for me by the lonely lamp at the Rosary park. I looked back. I just couldn’t believe that they didn’t wait up for me.
His eyes twinkled like the stars above him. He laid me gently to rest and I slept alone on lush green grass. I counted his footsteps as he walked away. Left dirt on my once rosy cheeks. My heart stopped. Life went on. Didn’t miss a beat.

I heard the echo of her screaming my name. In the distant, I could see my father begging her to come back inside. I was terrible at sneaking out. Their bedroom lights went off before midnight.
Brian was dreamy. He was waiting for me by the lonely lamp at the Rosary Park. I’m certain he wanted to kiss me. And I’m perfectly certain that I was the happiest girl in town. I headed towards the woods. I stopped. And looked back. I just couldn’t believe that they didn’t wait up for me.

He chased after me one moonless night. The stenches of his breath pressed heavily against me when he finally held me. I learned the whole meaning of the word vain and gave up struggling. His eyes twinkled like the stars above him. He laid me gently to rest, to sleep alone on lush green grass. I counted his footsteps as he walked away. He wrote agony on my innocent face, left dirt on my once rosy cheeks.
Brian waited for me broken hearted on the one broken bench. My heart stopped. Life went on. Didn’t miss a beat. Seems like I was a just little ditty on a history music sheet.
