City Lights - Poem by Kwai Chee Low

City lights so bright
Alluring, fascinating sight
Like earthly stars from afar
A far away kingdom beyond par

City buildings so tall
Their peaks cannot be seen at all
Grand cold concrete structures
Stand aloof as if part of nature

City people so many
At night, too many to tally
Pursuing every which way
A release from the stress of the day

City streets so deserted
Even as the last couple departed
Now not a soul in sight
Only neon lights like shining souls burn bright

    Thank you, Cigeng. To me city lights can be a dilemma, it can enhance one's joy when in good company, yet it can also reflect one's loneliness many folds, if one is alone and with pensive thoughts.
