The City

city view

“Like a faint whisper in the air,

you hum along to the people’s voices,

and move in time with the rush of bodies,

keeping up with the madness.

You are full of secrets,

most of which

will never be unveiled.

A mute stroyteller;

you are marked by change

and raised with ambition,

not so unlike a person.

With glowing lights

conquering our glowing hearts,

you must be weary,

experiencing the same emotions we feel,

but you can’t answer back.

A road without a city at the end

is not alive but empty

for there is no history;

a soulless site.

You laugh, dream and cry with us,

and I wonder,

what would you say if you

could speak?”

Prompt: City
