Behind Closed Eyes

When I close my eyes at night

I still see skyscrapers.

When I close my eyes,

I can hear the horns and sirens.

When I close my eyes,

I can feel the wind from the lake tossing my hair into my face.

When I close my eyes,

I can smell the mixture of popcorn, lake water, car exhaust and hamburgers.

When I close my eyes,

I can still feel the pulse of the city through the soles of my feet.
