The Brave One

I sat alone in the Forbidden Cinema
Among the chairs, all upholstered red
and watched the trailers with mighty content
a night in town before going to bed

I sat alone and when the movie started
I prayed to God he would spare me the worst
and watched the characters as they damaged each other
and heard their laughter which was offered in jest

I sat alone in the deserted theatre
which showed a movie which was coated in pain
then I walked out to the comfort of strangers
and sought the shelter that was brought by the rain
