Poem: The dreaming city

Scarlett's Corner

As black as pitch

The sky stands tall

With stars hanging

From it

The moon lights up the town

Sleepy, quiet and tranquil

People are dreaming

About lives they never had

About cities that never were

And people that never lived

They drown in imagination

And creativity

In magnificent colors and sights

Some people dream of simple things

A walk on a beach

A shopping spree

Others create thrillers

Horror movies

So intricate that they wake up

Out of breath

Drained by fear

And the night goes on

Giving refuge to the weary

To the loners

To the artists

To the sleepless

Awake and comforted

By the stillness

Of the dreaming city
