A Thousand Bars

Four feet shuffle on and shuffle off,
laying a last charge upon the ledger.

Dragging on despondent devotion,
they cling to each other as startled eyes
look on beneath bright cafeteria lights at
damp faces and that charming cherry skirt.

Under her unreal parting bars he is
weary in a world, that for him,
cannot exist.



I will always remember Robin Williams for his dramatic roles, because I think that is where he truly shined, despite that he was known for being a funny man.  Yesterday evening I watched Awakenings, which is one of my favorite movies.  The scene where Leonard says goodbye to Paula in the cafeteria has always touched me.
