LIGHTS OF THE CITY

Lights of the city far away they look so pretty. As I get closer your lights seem warm and 
bright as I search all through the night. But right next to you you’re not as warm as I had 
dreamed. I should never have traveled so far now all I want is to go back and just see you 
from afar. Your lights how pretty they are.

I think this poem goes with Personification... Nice work!

This poem is both lighthearted and a bit sad. It captures something we have all experienced: anticipation of the thing being better in the end than the thing itself! This poem is plain and honest, and suggests a rhyme scheme without being singsong. My favorite line seems the crux of the poem, but also the most poetic line in it: "I should never have traveled so far now all I want is to go back and just see you from afar" and then, the following, last line is both wistful and ironic. Nicely done!
