City Heart

You buried yourself
In the heart of the city.
Skyscrapers and bright lights,
Busy streets, buzzing nights.
People moving in swarms,
Traffic noise, exhaust fumes.
The pulse of the city
Keeps your heart beating; electricity.
The only way you can find peace
Is to be still amongst chaos.
I thought I’d found
A way to love you,
But your heart belonged
To the city.
