The City That Never Sleeps

The City that Never Sleeps

Ⅰ.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the helpful lights are always aglow,
the shores always welcoming,
the traffic always rushing on the street.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the streetlights are always twinkling,
the waves always crashing,
the skyscrapers always bright.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the winds are always whistling,
the people always bustling,
the city always colourful.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the tunnels are always crammed with cars,
the streets always jammed with people,
the sky always occupied by thousands of planes.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the noise is intense and loud,
the houses are filled with voices of different ages,
the attractions buzzing with people.

Whether it’s day or night,
chaotic or tranquil,
breezy or lifeless,
you’ll definitely find your place,
here in the city that never sleeps.

Ⅱ.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the lights are never fully turned off,
the noise never fully suppressed,
the liveliness never really gone.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the taxis zip past late at night,
the motors make that familiar, nostalgic sound,
interrupting the silence of the night.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the buildings dance at night,
joyous, carefree and lively,
to the song of bypassing vehicles.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the stars are always here to welcome you,
when you arrive in the hours of darkness,
they’ll always be smiling down on you.

Here in the city that never sleeps,
the trees are always awake,
swaying in harmony with the winds,
the pleasant, cooling winds.

So join the night party,
with the insomniacs,
the buildings, the lights,
the winds, the stars, the trees,
here in the city that never sleeps.

So how was the first post? Feedback please! I hope it’s all right… I wrote it more than a month ago and left it alone. I read through it just once, because I was too lazy to correct it. And from the poem, I think you might be able to guess where I live. I really do love the lights here. Anyway, leave a comment, okay? :D See y’all later! :)
