A...poem.
 



Electric Angel 

I stood in the dark and watched him, 

Didn't think he felt me there. 

I'd never heard such perfect music 

Played by one so strangely fair. 

I still remember how he stood there, 

As he played his music through. 

As I watched him I could see, 

His hair was white, eyes perfect blue. 

I listened to his music. 

It was more beautiful than I can say. 

It seemed to speak of empty sorrow, 

Of all the things now gone away. 

I don't think he could have heard me. 

I stood there silent as the dead. 

I don't know why he did it, but, 

He stopped his play and turned his head. 

I hoped at first he didn't know, 

That he looked but did not see. 

I felt myself go cold when I 

Saw him gently smile at me. 

But still he didn't seem to care. 

He shook his head and looked away, 

And, as I stood unsure and frightened, 

He began again to play. 

I watched him for a little while, 

But he didn't look again. 

When I left him I was certain 

That he was not like other men.
