why could no-one else see him?
right there, in front of everyone
place your hands on my chest
see if you can feel my heartbeat
he said with a sly smile
my hands reached forward
rested on his bare torso
with his arms raised, he shouted
to a crowded room, unseen
be free, just be free with me
the thrill was a jolt to winter's slumber
he even invited me to the rooftop
so I could hear him recite poetry
except...always an except isn't there?
I couldn't find my phone, you see
panic overtook and I regretfully declined
for god's sake, it was Jim Morrison
right there, bold and loud, in front of me
except I had to find my phone
so people didn't worry over me
technology...conformity...restriction of self
have I ever truly been me?
