City Lights

The city lights never fade.
The sky is lit, yellow.
The stars never shine bright.
The moon is always all alone.

The smile is never long enough.
The pregnant pauses, awkward.
This life never pleases us.
The hope, our only companion.

The friends never stay forever.
The stolen promises, broken.
The tears never dry too soon.
The death, our only constant.

The lullaby never serenades.
The lyrics, determined.
The meanings drift us to another world.
The moment, our sole purpose

The city lights never fade.
The sky is never black-blue.
The stars leave the moon alone.
The moon still shines.


The coffee is never too strong.
The sleep, unnecessary.
The mug is full of memories.
The night, our lone mate


The all is never everything.
The effort, tired.
The victory seems far away.
The result, our single wait.



The love never last for long.
The rain falls, slow.
The heart ache always hurts too much.
The change, our only permanence.


The city lights never fade.
The sky lit by fireflies.
The stars are somewhere else.
The moon owns the sky tonight.


The relationships are never too alien.
The names, forgotten.
The people are too loud around.
The loneliness, our solitary silhouette.


The house never seems too big.
The spaces, empty.
The windows see the sunrise daily.
The home, our ultimate desire.

The words never seem honest.
The intentions, blurred.
The trust is buried deep in each soul.
The belief, our only saviour.

The city lights never fade.
The amber gives way to rain clouds.
The hope is ushered, the stars twinkle.
The moon dips, the sun shone.


The city lights never fade.
Another day begins to live.
The broken promises stitched to fit.
The dried tears smile away.


The city lights never fade.
The day goes on, as planned above.
The meanings mean another world.
The coffee brewed strong enough.


The city lights never fade.
The evening rises with a desire.
The love lasts, the heartaches die.
The victory glows on our face.


The city lights never fade.
The sun sets to an amber sky.
The frown dips with the sun.
The ‘never’ becomes ‘sometimes’.

The city lights never fade.
The night sky is what we all have.
The stars, this time twinkle alone.
The moon disappears behind the veil of time.
