A Walk Under City Lights

A Walk Under City Lights
Summer Strolling Sentiments

It’s another lonely summer night…
With the full moon shining so bright…
As I walk under every city light…
I dream of the day when we can walk together side by side…

 

Feeling the cobblestone right underneath our feet…
With cars honking in this busy street…
And cats crying in the distance as if they were singing to a rhythmic beat…
With our hands together and our hearts following the same rhythmic beat…

 

Resting for a moment sitting in a bench found in this city’s maze…
Gazing at the full moon while we hold each other in a sweet embrace…
Looking at each other intently with a passionate gaze…
Kissing while our hearts beat hastily as if it were in a race…

 

And then after our night together when it’s about time to go home…
I wish upon a star to hold time’s phone…
So I can spend more time with you alone…
And hear more of your voice’s lovely and gentle tone…

 

Then by your door before we part…
One final hug and kiss from the heart…
I love you and goodbye for now my darling sweetheart…
Seeing you again will be my tomorrow’s favorite part…

 

I dream of our love to be…
Hot and passionate, burning like the flames of scorching Fire…
With feelings gushing like a torrent of tidal Water…
With resolve that is firm as rich Earth…
With the bond between us that is strong as sturdy Metal…
With loyalty as smooth as the feel of oak Wood…

 

These are the thoughts in my mind tonight…
As I gaze at the full moon’s light…
As I walk slowly under every lamp post and city light…
In this lonely summer night…

    Very nicely expressed!

  3. I loved joining you on your walk under the city lights, Julian. A beautiful expression of love and enjoying someone’s company even though just a dream. Sweet.

  4. Very romantic verse, sounds of the night and hearts beating very lovely.
    You certainly have a variety of themes that you cover with your poetry! Great work and I love the mushroom.;)

  5. I like it:) I see the street lamps as I look out of my windows at this moment – yellow lamps, the silent street, the bustle from the pub – all makes one pensive and full of melochony at night..

  6. Ah! This is so beautiful and flowing… Love the rhymes and your choice of words – perfect and truly romantic!😉
    Thanks a lot for the nomination too! You’re being too kind ;P

  7. Javier, the beauty in your post is brilliant, a very lyrical take…!

    It would be very helpful if you don’t use bright yellow on black my friend. Reading at night as I am right now, it just blinds me..!

    My Post Is Here

    • My son keeps a marker in his pocket and writes notes on his arm. True story. But I think this one would have required at least a bare thigh to give room for all the words.

  8. I needed to read straight through this post twice since it was interesting! beautiful expression, a absolutely useful article. Thank you. I result your site to wish you prolonged success.
