From my city of streaming emotions,
Your city is mysteriously appealing.
My yearning communicated to you
By the phone lines of unexplained.
Magical attraction, Electric currents
Artificial flowers emitting scent
Bells ringing for the blooming love.
Echoed your voice to my yearning.
My inner city grew warmer with light
Giving me your heart,
You held me tight.
I saw what your heart held inside
The breath and length and everywhere
It was engraved-
On my name, my body and my soul
You’ve successfully laid your claim.
My city you’ve enslaved
In this amorous slavery.
The fog envelops the cities
But neither is sulking, because
Adorned are the two now
In fiery jewellery.
