NaPoWriMo 2012 - Day #21 - how deep is

something melancholic from me today...

how deep is

how deep is your love?
down in the subway tunnels
on late nights
some nights
aimless rides
the tunnel walls
just inches
from my face
flashing by
our lives
flashing by
till it all ends
on a bleak night
and i am
all alone
in the
rumbling wombs
of the trains
that song
on the tracks
how deep is your love?
till i resurface
to the neon
drenched streets
to the city lights

The words run like train through the tunnel, with short lines like that. :) Through a dark tunnel, when you emerge to surface night, I think the many colored lights of the city would be a cheer. :)

thanks, Ravenblack. :)

this poem is quite personal. it's about loss and how to (or not knowing how to) cope with it. meta'phorically, like you said, it's also the light at the end of the tunnel. :)
