The city – Yen

The city is a caged demon
A caged demon in Hades
The key is in the lake of fire,
The key to unleash wild fury
The city is a fragment of dreams
Dreams of rose petals
Of fallen civilisations
Of weathered lanes and flooded streets
The city is a whisper on the wind,
Beckoning, cajoling
Persuading me to enter its cage
To release my freedom for eternal torture
The city is a mad man
His mind is a series of networks
Made of tangled up cables
Weaving a perfect web of symmetry
