The Alleyway



“Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again”

The song played in his head as he turned into the alleyway.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone

Would he ever fulfil his vow to find her?

“When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light”


He saw her standing in the distance, with the headlights of the car lit behind her.  He was swept by a wave of emotion that threatened to engulf him.  There she was, the woman who had left him at the doors of the orphanage.
