Downtown sidewalk


I'm walking in the city,
Downtown air fills my lungs,

People pass by me laughing,
I can see love in their eyes,

The two people pass me,
I watch as the women trips,
As she trips on the Downtown sidewalk,

The man with her drops what he has in his hands,
As she falls he reached out his arms,

She lands in his embrace arms,
In his love,

They kiss,
I walk away on the Downtown sidewalk,
Carful when I walk so I don't trip,

Careful not to fall because I have no,
One to keep me from falling,
Love can't catch me

I would fall on the Downtown sidewalk,
I trip,

As I fall someones reaching for me,
But who,

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
