Busy City Streets, Heavy City Nights.

Busy City Streets

i'm sleeping.

Heavy City Nights

i'm weeping.

Long city miles

i'm crawling.

Pretty city lights are calling...

But i'm falling,

falling behind

and it's not wrong to me

to not know what i want to do

and not know who i want to be,

i'm just tired of living a lie

with two faces

and a smile...

I'm tired of wasting my time.

Busy City Streets

i'm sleeping.

Heavy City Nights

i'm weeping.

Long city miles

i'm crawling.

Pretty City Lights


But i'm falling behind

and it's not wrong to want to change my mind.

Busy City Streets

i'm sleeping.

Heavy City Nights

i'm dreaming

for i'd rather be anywhere

than living in this nightmare.

I can relate to parts of this write, It describes how I feel when I'm trying to sleep, but there is too much mind traffic going on inside my head.. the blinding lights stopping you from clesrly seeing that what you need to in order to resolve the million and one thoughtsfinding their way through your mind, all done behind a masked prescenceof sleepy calmness...

Thats what your poem meant to me, and how I related to it..
p.s Welcome to CP :)
