My Writing

Lost City

Slick pavements
Broken dreams
Crushed hearts
Druggies and junkies
Dreamers and believers
Streets crowded with lost souls
Near and far
Hustling and bustling through life
Lost in the fumes
Inhaling the dust of the past
Exhaling the lust of the future
Squandering the wealth of the earth
Until she crumbles under another lost city
