The City

Did you know this city didn’t sleep tonight?

It watched through the darkness which enveloped the night sky,

The empty terrains waiting for a lover to pass by.

It peeped through the ruffles that slip from the window

Every time an engine stops near the road.

It blinked with the light that impatiently waits for a sign,

A sound, a cheer, or a mild sneer.

Anything would do when the patience runs dry,

A smile, a Hi, or a premature goodbye!

The city watched the pale cheeks turn the night white,

No sign of hope, only despair filled sighs.

There was music in the night, singing songs of love

Lost in midnight, lost in time.


The city knows the lights that stay up all night.

It knows the plight waiting brings to life.
