City of lights


Neon flashing lights shimmer

Across a rain soaked street

In the dark the moon shines

And the black sky is breeched

The lights of the tall city buildings

Create a collage of different colours

The steam raises up through grates

In the main streets and the shiadows

The gaudy neon pinks and blues

Are vivid in a city where darkness still creeps

The bulbs of the neon often flicker and create a fractured sight

And it’s not hard to feel lonely and vunerable

It’s hard to be in such a tropical heat

Its hard to find love in this kind of place

Where only ghosts walk the streets.
