My head casts shadows over the city

thoughts flap from spires like flags

intention skips

along cobbled streets of time

My essence lingers

inside skyscrapers of modernity

the light of my soul hovers

above sultry streets

My reflection burns

in a smouldering sky

where gaslight stars misconceive

moonlight

My dreams hang from star-spangled skies

beliefs propped up

against pillars of moon rock

passions radiate from sunshine

My synthesised heart hums in rhythm

a vibration of bees

my caterpillar spine escapes

its chrysalis

    1. So captivating, the melody invading, yet illusive. Loved this part especially:”My essence lingers

      inside skyscrapers of modernity

      the light of my soul hovers

      above sultry streets”
