Word Prompt: Skyscrapers

Where the light goes

Those on zero don’t know

The glimpse of fleck and streak

Streets littered with shade

Gold don’t shine in these parts

Lofty men behind window walls

Privileged suits claim it their own

The ceiling they touch with carbon hands

Soiling the air those below will breathe

Greased clouds heavy with toil

Rolled past on assembly lines

Bursting in tears when oiled rainbows appear

Dyes tainted with smog

Chemicals scatter from penthouses above

Make rain where the light should go

It’s hidden in a vault

On the ninety-sixth floor

With the electricians they pay

Blocking the sun from shining below

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
