A Poem by Brian Kraklau

at night you leave me wandering aimless 
stumbling, standing, falling on down the road
with my guitar in hand in search for fools gold.
oh, beautiful city of Las Vegas
by sunrise you leave me searching, so lost
the carpet moving under my feet as i light a smoke
my eyes wide at her painful words she left on a note.
oh, bright city of Las Vegas
the moon was never so beautiful in the past
shaking, crying, begging through her eyes that said goodbye
i could swear i dont love her anymore 
but that would be a lie.
oh, lonesome city of Las Vegas

This has such beautiful flow. Your imagery evokes the other, darker side of Las Vegas, where everything is lost including love. I keep re-reading and marveling at the words, so simply put yet so strong. Well done!

I really like this poem. I haven't talked to you in months, and here I am, learning about your new life in Las Vegas through poetry. I'm sorry to learn of what I presume is a breakup. I know you see the beauty in everything, though, and I hope you're making the best of your time there. - Adam L
