Manhole of Love – A Poem

It flows
Remains of the civilized
Beneath the dazzling views
Would you like a peek?
In the manhole of greed

It reeks
The ashes of burnt aspirations
Under your new boots
Would you like to shop?
In the manhole of despair

It dazzles
The fake city of wonders
Below your pierced body
Would you like to wander?
In this manhole of delusions

Or maybe you want the truth
Maybe you seek
For what you have never seen
For what you have heard
But never had the courage to look

It is peaceful
The real test of time
Above all the hostility in the world
Would you slaughter reality for your dreams?
In this endless manhole of love
