girl.

“how can i be surrounded, she asked,
by the noises and movements
of a city wide awake
and still feel alone?
by buildings that stay lit
and feel darkness closing in
on my every move?
why does this place feel like a fortress,
like i’m a prisoner inside my own body
yet i am free to leave
whenever i damn well please?”
