City of Stars

Fri, 05/05/2017 - 11:01 -- ACME

A bright hazy gleam
Both solemn and giddy
Trapped inside a dazzling dream
Is this magnificent city

Air so crisp, fragile almost
Black expanses reaching past the sea
Certainly not a coast
In this stretching city

Bring your pain and sorrow
Come close as you are
For all will be gold by the ‘morrow
In this city without scars

So crowded it’s burning
Each one touches the next
Each heart filled with yearning
Inside this city’s chest

Busy as can be when things streak by
Leaving trails of sparkling dust
Painted across the night sky
In city-like gusts

This shining city is not from near
This city lies very far.
No where near here
Is this city of stars

This poem is about: 
Our world
