The City - Poem by Elle Jay E..

cold concrete against my feet I walk along the street.
No stop lights holding me, I am free.
Firestation cold and empty, with no one around to tempt me.
To go with them and shoot some hoops that I know ill lose.
I keep walking along.
Till im at the street where I belong.
I stand in the alley.
With no sounds around me.
But the distant shrieks of sirens as I dropp to my knees.
I still have your memory.
Right next to me.
Where you always will be.
You're always with me. In the big city.
You protect me.
Always Respect me.
And never reject me.
Wherever you are.
I know you're a star.
Underneath the hard shell.
I become aware.
Of the sirens in the air, coming closer.
I hear them and i know its curfew.
I gotta few more words for you.
Ill finish them another time, remember this ryhme.
And know I love you.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Its about my friend that i know is somewhere..but i dont know exactly where.this ones for him.I dont know how he is, wish me some luck, but ill miss him. i have to write poems because just writing the story in general isnt enough to capture it fully..it doesnt do it justice.
