I was downtown on my own one night, scouting for different lighting and architecture photo spots. It had been a long time since I'd felt that type of vulnerabilities, taking me back to places I only wanted to forget.
Feeling the steps underneath
Of downtown sidewalk streets
Passing by the lives nestled in the shallow doorways
Involved in their own singular heartbeats
Beams of light splitting buildings
Eroding away another restless night
Chasing hues that seem to me, chilling
Pulling up a thin coat collar
To fight the cold
In search of images
Only my Nikon knows.
