City Lights

As the sun


to the moon,

my spirit


its gloom.

As the day


to darkness,

my smile


into blankness.

As bright

city lights


my tired

weary heart


As humans



my spirit

starts to


As the

the stars’re


my soul’s

  1. Aww. 😦 Beautifully sad poem, Rosema. I love your clever play with words and rhymes. And that’s a beautifully sad song from Sara, too.

    Anyway, I’m sending you smiles on a lovely Sunday dear. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Thank you, lovely Maria! This is the poem that was supposed to be published last Friday but I don’t want to make you sad anymore that is why I moved it to Sunday. 🙂 I made this after a tiring draining day, actually. 🙂

      You like listening to Sara, too? ❤

      I am sending you love as Monday starts! ❤❤❤

      1. Oh, this is really beautiful. It reminds me of times that I felt exactly this way.
        I hope we’ll both have a great wee, Rosema. 🙂 And yes, I like listening to Sara too. My favorite is her I Choose You. ❤ ❤ ❤ I want it to play on my wedding. Kiliiiiiiiiiiggggg

      2. Oh really? Me too. This poem is not fictional, because sometimes I get a little bit melancholic as the sun sets.
        But I hope this week will be great! Especially now that Monday is a holiday! 😂

        Yay! I choose you is I think her sweetest song. ❤


      3. Hmm.. we always get to experience days like that. It’s part of life I think. Oh, I’m jealous. I get to work on a holiday. 😦 But excited coz my 10 day vacation is fast approaching! 😀
        Really ❤ that song… Haayy..
