Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Fourth
 

 


Turning my head again
searching for another taste
of the night
The fireworks are still flashing
in my mind as the intricate patterns
dissolve on the ground below

Where were you when the
grand finale lit up the vast darkness?
I could almost feel your smile
and the gentle tug on my sleeve
I could almost hear your soft voice
exclaiming your visual awe

The emptiness fell heavy
as I reached for my folding chair
and made my way back to oblivion

Somewhere on the other side of town
a young boy has blown his finger off with
a large cherry bomb

The pain is not the same
but its still pain

emptiness abounds
for the boy and I

Missing love
missing finger

Good night America
wherever you are
