Favorite Quote:
"In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that would die if forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself 'Must I write?'" - Rainer Maria Rilke


Limousines and city scenes,
You’ll be mine in the Chicago skyline,
Pass me by the midnight lights,
Their glow is all you know.

I know that you’re here somewhere,
Hiding while the skyscraper’s stare,
And maybe soon you’ll come around,
Then we’ll fall in love,
Downtown.

And up here, I can’t see the stars,
So they can’t guide me, but I hope you’re not far,
Although the buildings block my view,
I wish they wouldn’t block yours too.

A lonely feeling, I defeat,
While i’m on such a busy street,
Through the crowds, I push right through,
In the city, I hope to find you,
Maybe soon you’ll come around,
And we’ll fall in love,
Downtown.

The author's comments:
I live not too far from Chicago, however, I don't get to go there often. I got a chance to go to a wedding there, in a fancy hotel, and just being in the city captivated me and inspired me to write this.
