city, takes but doesn't give back, loneliness, nature gives, poetry, steven humphreys

The city

The city down there

it takes from me

I have to travel clear up here

to take from you

to renew my spirit

with your vibrations

making

me feel whole

again

yet,

I have nothing to give back

but my love for you

but, I must

ask

is this

enough

to stand

beside

your

glory

and

grandeur?

and, just in

that moment

like an answer

from god

came a bird

gliding by,

tweeting

his song of

life

landing

on a branch

preening

himself

looking around

and then

abruptly

flying

the other way.
