    I'm a city girl
    ...the silences of the country...moving me away from city sounds into
    quietness..
    but a city girl..little city noises, voices,
    creaks, machinery - the city
    man made sounds

    i get to quietness
    see me in the blackness
    and for a moment feeling the head pushing
    forward...
    Yet city girl
    and concentrationsounds pull me from the
    oneness
    the universe
    ...a city child city girl man made city
    man made thoughts city girl
    trying to get/getting
    some country in me.

    The hustle bustle of the city, the slowed pace of the country, sometimes the ease is welcome. Keep writing poet of the week.

    I definitely feel U with this one here.

    I like 2 see traffic whizzing by at 3 a.m.,
    get the munchies, go 2 the corner store.
    Where I'm at now, U gotta catch the grocery store before it closes.
    Late at nite now, I rock fruits & toast with syrup.

    But yes, the country is a good place 2 unwind & find time 4 yourself.

    ladies and gentlemen
    brothers and sisters'
    women and men
    what is that energy that sends you here and not overthere
    what is that special voice that says check this out and not that
    true love - olakuoto - triniti 24 - angelicsage
    you've come finding little touches of me
    sending back positive energy
    ah $$rich$$ - watzinaname - mzblkangel - positive mindset
    I seem to see you in my space all the time
    you can not know how much you make me feel so fine
    I'm trying to rhyme...when rhyme isn't what it's about
    It's abut sharing ..giving support...
    so don't stop your flows...just know
    like the turtle i am very slow...but i want to get to all of you..
    to feel your passions i already feel your grace

    PS: does some of it have to do with the title of the piece...i am serious..

    deepy you are so cute. I was drawn by your title, but your verses hooked me in completely. I really like this one, and know what you mean about having to adjust to the different rhythms.
