Long Time Gone

A. Callier
Long forgotten city lights
Twinkling through the soothing night
This city feels abandoned
It’s part of our lives

The air is hot, it trembles
It carries ashes we can’t see
This city feels depressed
A treasure without a key

Long time gone
Time is moving fast
History’s moving slow
Long time gone
Sometimes it is better
Not to know

Long forgotten histories
Stories full of poetry
One day we are happy
The next we’re really sad

Words are trembling in the air
Try to stick but mostly fail
Dyslexic hearts don’t match
They can’t remove the veil
