“ Empty, All Else That Stands Is The City.”

Empty as this city, these sidewalks littered with years of tragedy. Its air dead, its air says something to me.
Honesty it’s a road that’s taken us nowhere, the places it takes us leads to are like dark avenues where people stare, people I
Never knew.

“The people and cars pass by ever so fast, hitting their gas, leaving me behind in their smoke like a memory left to settle in
the dust of the past. No need to take me, my shadow will never forsake me.”

Flanked by the dreams left for the fall that lay here still, touched by the frozen frost chill. Leave me with an emotion
Unphased and unbroken by the atmosphere of the surreal, give me something safe to feel.

“The people and cars pass by ever so fast, hitting their gas, leaving me behind in their smoke like a memory left to settle in
the dust of the past. No need to take me, my shadow will never forsake me.”

My senses linger, my lust trails.
These false hopes they want you but always appear to fail. I won’t rely on these tendencies because their much to frail.
Unlike most in this city I’m so convinced that without love I’m slowly slipping into hell.


“The people and cars pass by ever so fast, hitting their gas, leaving me behind in their smoke like a memory left to settle in
The dust of the past. No need to take me, my shadow will never forsake me.”

Skyscrapers were built to reach for the people who crave the far-fetched truths but without love it’s all no use, it’ll just come
Cascading like it does from their roofs. Fall for me so I can live my life truthfully rather than fearfully. Take me and make me
Something even if in the end you cast me away as nothing, make me something.

“The people and cars pass by ever so fast, hitting their gas, leaving me behind in their smoke like a memory left to settle in
the dust of the past. No need to take me, my shadow will never forsake me.”



Before I met you I was able to sleep so much deeper but you took me from being a dreamer and made me your believer,
your whispered words are the only way I feel I can possibly be delivered. I’m waiting to hear those longing words from your
lips but they seem to be taking forever, wait much longer and my heart’ll be frozen over with December. Give me a brush or
let me hug your waist, kiss me now give me something to remember even if it’s a caress along my cheek with your fingers.
Don’t leave me frozen through December.


“The people and cars pass by ever so fast, hitting their gas, leaving me behind in their smoke like a memory left to settle in
the dust of the past. No need to take me, my shadow will never forsake me.”

Thank you!! :) you don't know how deeply, I appreciate your comment and your time to do so, I've always wanted to write to show others what I can do because this is a side I don't really openly display to others; so, thank you for letting me share and for finding enjoyment within it! :)

Wonderful word choice, I really like how you repeated the line "my shadow will never forsake me." Great flow, and the emotions of the piece really stand out. Good Job :)
