A Scene from Our City

Written by: Matthew Anish

Loud music 
         and lights on a bridge 
  cut into my consciousness
Another city evening has come 
   The heat of the midsummer 
afternoon 
     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
