Photo Friday: Vanity

and the glamour of the city
shall one day fade away
corrupted souls
uncanny woes
shall then bathe the streets
with echoes

and the vanity of the pavements
shall one day crumble
crash down the underground
with pieces of jealousy
and teardrops of lament

and the dictates of the void
lay upon the beast of time
entrenched sorrow
banging in heartless ensemble
racing to the oblivion of crime

and the sorrow of the wicked
shall overrule
taste the darklands of torture
lay in anxiety and unending conceit
watch in stillness
and absorb its beat

as this city shall come forth -
and one day fade away..

note: this was suppose to be my contribution to Photo Friday (for the topic 'Vanity') and Illo Friday (for the subject 'Glamour') last week. I took this pic and edited thru Picassa.

But it's too late to post the links tho. This week was too busy for me, I just got a job which only offered night shifts, so no time for my blog then. And during the day, I hide in between my cusions and grab myself as much sleep as I needed. My appologies for the late postings...

I was actually intrigued by your user icon. And when I browsed through your journal, it delighted me that you are a Filipina! Hurray!

Well, I'll see you around.

aravis.. thanks.. my new job made me think too.. how people are so engrossed in the city while all along forgetting how beautiful and relaxing other places can be.. and how we would fade away mentally without realizing this.
