Once Upon a City Light

you owned the city lights
when I was once upon a time
a lost, devoted creature
mezmerized naively
by your glow.
 
shining in my imperfection
we touched hands and danced
the best way I knew how.
Recoleta Night, City Lights 2

    1. Yes, like the relationship where one cares more than the other.

  2. Wow @ the second line. Wistful, yet kind of self-deprecating.

    I really, really like the ending. Someone could be embarrassed or proud based on the "best way I knew how" line.
