A Scene from Our City

Loud music 
         and lights on a bridge 
  cut into my consciousness
Another city evening has come 
   The heat of the midsummer 
     has gone away 
bringing the night people into focus 
   A demi - monde in the heart of the metropolis 
Wanton women, drunken men and 
all the bars are open 
   I stay inside and miss the "action"
    Utilizing my pen 
I free myself from the dark urban scenario
Creativity is a gift to all concernted 
    Pleasure comes 
to those who dare to express 
their innermost feelings
and through the magic of words    
        touch the souls
of kindred spirits

    Your poem tells us where the action really dwells - 'in the souls of kindred spirits"

    i'm sure you've touched many souls with your magic words. i like the fact that even when you stay inside, the sounds of the city float in anyway, so you're still a part of it.
