The Date

He awoke the beast before him, it’s heaviness gave awe

Dancingly his fingers spread, awaking the roar with such divine law

The gentleman played gentle tunes, as if serenading a bride on her honeymoon

The boy cried from the ingenious delight

But It all seemed to fade——when the clock began to reach midnight

In his jealousy, the boy sat silent

Awaiting to plan his next affair in hope of not to look like such a tyrant

For all he wanted, was the love of his own

But in his decency, he might have been brother zoned.
