Nash Aniruth ~ The City of My Dreams

Take me away...
I beg of you
I'm depressed and in dismay
You know it's true
They say that life won't be that grey
- they don't have a clue

They don't know what it's like
to constantly chase your dreams at night
Weary eyed and wasted
The wine of success I have not yet tasted.

Night after night
The melody of Metropolis
resonates with my inner sprite

Stop holding me back,
or else my aspirations will crumble
under the rubble
of the city of my dreams.

Take me away
to the city I love so dearly
The City of my Dreams...

    I love the way those lines sound! What is great about this poem is the way the emotions have been contextualized within the setting of the city.
