The Poetry Snapshot: A Modern Love Story

You can feel the midnight rush on her streets.
You never know who you are going to meet.
You hear the faint sprinting sound of feet,
as someone unfamiliar tries to catch her last bus fleet.

She always gives you a reason to be dressed up,
to forever feel young even when you’re all grown-up.
Everyone that walks by carries a different story.
Even her forgotten corners have their own sense of glory.

The minute you arrive you do not want to leave,
because you never know what she has up her sleeve.
And despite all the lonely dances,
she’ll always have you in mesmeric trances.
