city lights

these nighttime lights

they shine so bright

blinding my soul

worse than daylight.

i squint up my face
like the suns in my eyes
a common reaction
perhaps a disguise.

turn out the street lights
drive alone in the dark
don't know where you're going
until you find your car parked.

the side of the road
as cars blur past
rushing, not caring
and driving too fast.

i put my head in your hands

as we hear tires scream

i can't stand the agony

my ears start to bleed.

put out the lights, turn off the sounds
i cant stand this ringing, its ringing, its ringing.

like cries in night,

tears in the lake

this ringing, this ringing

won't go away.
