I attended the open mic night at Sky Cafe again. There were a few more people this week, plus someone from where I work came out. I read some more poems: "Last Illusion", "Girl With Black Hair", "Argument", "Cocktail Party", "How Love Dies" and "Pacific Ocean". The people applauded and even remarked how good the poems were. One of the musicians remarked before the event that he remembered a poem I read last week. "There's the guy who wrote Descending the Stairs." It was a bittersweet moment. I haven't written poetry in a few years but lately I've been so oddly inspired. I keep a small notebook with me and jot down various ideas and poems that come to me. My dark mood and emptiness does have a bright side to it after all.
