neon lights turn to dimmed lights,
broken bulbs on street lights,
mirror effect. parallel streets.
walking down the street like-
with confidence and with heart.
partying and carefree,
dependent on the bottle.
the other one, pensive
with a heavy heart,
pen and paper in hand.
that bottle is an aphrodisiac
but that pen holds the substance.
mirror effect. walking down
two different streets, until they meet,
and neon lights turn to dimmed lights.
broken bulbs to full lampposts.
