Blue Cafe. I'm sitting in the Blue Cafe right now. The Older One is a man who is complex. Gifted and talented. Mesmerizing. An artist. An intellect. However he isn't one walking this road of life with misconceptions and rose colored glasses. He knows. The broken dreams. The things that slipped through those talented fingers. The prices to be paid. The younger one who doesn't care, she may know but is so in love with his spirit that she turns a blind eye to the warnings. She is a dreamer. She wants to feel what he feels. She wants to enmesh herself in his being no matter the price. He's worth it because he makes her feel alive. He makes her look down the road. So they meet at the Blue Cafe, They contemplate. Can he do it? Can she do it ? The rise of a Chance For no Return?
