FIRST MERIT
Amy O'Toole

Street

Walking under the yellow street lights
The pavement beneath my feet
Looking up at buildings of towering heights
And at the moon frowning down at me.

The city is alive and dancing, but cold
As I settle on an empty park bench
I watch as people laugh and stroll
Past without a care in the world.

Quietly I am shrinking
Like a flower deprived of sun
Away from everything
Away from everyone.
