"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


A new road is being paved
In the city of my thoughts
And your name is on the street sign.

I can't keep myself away,
The street seems to call my name.
I pace the pavement endlessly.

Why in this sprawling network of roads,
On the paths where my pondering takes place,
Do I always end up back here?

After an impossible amount of time
Admiring the appealing avenue -
I buy myself a house at the corner of Your Name & My Heart <3

I tried to use a lot of alliterations, metaphors, and personification. This was a really fun concept I just HAD to turn into a poem - Lemme know what you think!

i never regret one bit checking out this poem. However simple a poem might be, some tend to hold a high variety of complex meanings/diverse. I think this particular poem constitute such vibrant values. Nice work.
