the streets are full tonight....

the streets are full tonight....

A Poem by marilyn 1225
"

pain of one kind or another is universal

"
the streets are full of wanderers 
full of wasted ,throwing up young ones
and old ones
lovers holding each other for dear life
others with the desire to leave their wretched strife

the streets are  full
of songs
of screams
and of the swaying
and swearing  of
millions
lost
on the brink of a new year
holding the knowlege
that  their  once beloved.. he or she, will neer return again ,ever never

that  the he or  she harbors
hate
and love for a stranger
with an entirely different heart
and soul
and that knowledge
leads to an almost insurmountable
toll  
FAR GREATER
THAN an earthquake 
instead , a nuclear explosion
in the soul...

and the streets are full
tonight...............

So heartfelt, emotional... sad and yearning, still the compassion lits the hope, the compassion toward someone else which can save us too, can heal our own wounds by giving a little something from our hearts, beautiful my friend, I wish You the most happiest of years, one filled with warmth, love, wondrous gifts and of course creativity ✨✨✨

You catch up all layers of night streets. Misery and joy , broken hopes and broken lives. Couples at love and wondering poets like silent angels. Wonderful write.

"the streets of filled with regret" as Ricky sang in Lonesome town"
New years Eve sometimes reminds me of that song...and the idea of how lonely it can feel in a crowd, when the heart is crying out for something it cannot have...peace.
