Wake Up

By jordynmyah

wake up

streetlights blaring light behind your eyelids
car horns blinding your ears
thoughts and thoughts and thoughts running around your mind
leaving little footprints on your brain
can’t think with all this noise
can’t sleep with all these thoughts

take a walk
the street is calmer at night
no newsboys shouting headlines to apathetic bystanders
no businessmen shouting about mistakes into their blackberrys and iphones and futuristic communication devices
no mothers trying to keep track of which leash is attached to the dog and which to the kid
only the cracks in the sidewalk
the sound of your heels on the pavement

look up
stare at stars of a different nature
billboards and street-lamps
night-lights peeking out of window shades
the smiles of two lovers enjoying each others’ embrace

breathe in
inhale the city
it smells of life and love
brings hope into the soul
this night is filled with imagination

wake up
