The Unfamiliar city air

Updated on December 28, 2010

The Unfamiliar City Air

                    It is rush hour in the city

Not a place I am familiar with,  it is no pity,

We all walk together,But I am alone,

do they seee it in my face 

that I am unknown?

Or do they think I am one of them

one of there own?

Fields are replaced by wet pavements

the cold winter air bites

shop windows in spectacular arrangements,

Gleaming christmas lights,

But they do not appeal to me much,

not like the views at home,

The tree's,leaves, air awaken me with just one touch

With nature I am never alone,

And as I walked through Grafton's bustling street,

I yearned so much for my quiet tranquil town,

Were you pass one another and greet,

with a smile, never a frown,

I am known in my home place

I am a person and not a shadow that walks past,

And that is how I would like it to stay

I have figured it all out, at last.

      Wet pavements, rush hour, walking down the street. It's very visual. It's a feeling you get when you've been gone from home for a long time. I loved it.

      I would be nice in reading this what and why you gave up what you loved for to be where you are auspiciously miserable.

      You've expressed thoughts of detachment and loneliness in the city very well!

      Keep scribing away, shaping and shining your poetry - So far you doing swell!

      good observations. Like the opening narration to a film noir story
