Random Poem:

Welcome
unknown

She looked around the corner
 1
one last time
 2
In her eyes, a searching look
 3
for someone familiar...something
 4
A smile, or a simple guesture
 5
A moment of joy
 6
 
 
In a cold alley at midnight
 7
Decorated with gutters inhabited by
 8
the rejects of civilization
 9
Wiped clean of a trace of a smile
 10
Lost hope written in graffiti
 11
underneath the bridge
 12
Neon signs advertising taboopleasures
 13
Flashing reminders of an already
 14
boldy illuminated, cold reality
 15
 
 
She turned her solemn face away
 16
from the bend
 17
And with each defiant step,
 18
she erased the past and advanced
 19
toward an icy, trash-covered threshold
 20
And placed her heel upon it
 21
Welcome.
