I closed my eyes

and I saw

a beautiful city.

It sat on a mountain and

shone like the sun,

like perfectly cut diamonds,

every detail

reflecting light

and hope

and joy.

When darkness slithered in

to steal her light

the city smiled

and freely gave

of her brilliant treasure.

The stealthy shadows

transfigured and

that which was

once dark became

a ruby,

blood and fire and light

in a glorious display.

I opened my eyes and

the city vanished

but I could still see

her lamp posts shimmering

around me and

I knew that although

I was more visible,

she was more real.
