Big City Lights

With hundreds of headlights staring back at me…

The evening Sun shines on me

Shines it’s light for all to see

I run through the Big City Lights

With hundreds of headlights staring back at me

Traffic lights blinking red and green

For an instant, it feels like a dream

The world revolves around me it seems

Just for an instant, you revolve around me

The beat of my heart mimics the horns being blown at me

I stand in the street and realize it’s not about me

It’s not about these blinking lights or the big one in the sky

No matter what I do the echoes of you fill my ears

The look of you blesses my eyes

In these buildings of concrete and steel

There are people hustling and bustling just to feel real

There are walls of glass reflecting the Big City Lights

There’s an essence in the atmosphere of what’s wrong and right

However, there is something that I have yet to see

Running through these Big City Lights with me

You

You use to like the glaring gleam of the light and its stream

But to me, it seems the brightness of the lights can no longer be seen

 

Peace and Love,

Thunder

Thunder out loud

Boom is the sound

Scaring the crowd

Boom is the sound

Loud and Proud with the shriek of a thousand claps

Boom is the sound

Thunder pounds the ground

Drops of rain hit the mound

Boom is the sound

Rain that speaks to the Earth’s pain

Heat rises to cause the wind to blow and waves to crash

Lightning flashes across the sky

The rain mimics the tears from my eyes

What a frightening and invigorating sound

When the thunder is loud

Boom is the sound

 

 

Peace and Love,

The Blind Date

We realized the blind can’t lead the blind…

When I open my eyes I search for your face

It escapes my vision, not quite in my point of view

You aren’t exactly what I hoped for is plastered on both of our faces

You shudder as I inch closer to you and avoid my attempted greet and embrace

This reminds me of the chase but normally both people are in the race

Perhaps this was a mistake plays in my mind like an old record player

It constantly skips the best part

We realize that the blind can’t lead the blind

So I close my eyes and open them again

Hoping that just maybe this time it will be different

Maybe all of my time won’t be annoyingly spent

I’ve gotta stop letting my friends set me up on these things

As that thought crosses my mind, my phone rings

Sigh. This is an emergency and I’ve gotta run

Dodged a bullet, now I can go have some real fun (Netflix and leftovers)
