City lights

Photo by Kostiantyn Stupak .


I looked out into the sea,
Of glittering lights beneath.
Spreading out into acres,
 As far as eyes could see.

I had beheld them before,
But today they seem;
To be polished to a shine,
I had never before seen.

Crystal clear lights,
Descried through crystal eyes;
I perceive my lens are clean,
But its nature who has got its sheen.

Darkness in the hearts,
Colours in nature beyond;
Dance a tango for months,
Entertaining mankind for a price.
