Bistro Memories

by P.J.Reed

The bistro bubbled
Glowed and sang
Tall necked glasses
Chimed as one.
Sunshine faces
Giggled loudly
Moonlight danced
Around the floor
Waitresses glide
By cluttered tables
Red lips bursting:
Berry flavoured promises
Caught your vacant eye
The wine arrived
As your heart left,
Flew across the floor
Hot face flickered
Watched girls move
In candlelight.
While wax dripped
Slowly, crashing down,
I melted from your life.
