New Here

The city swallows me whole
A comforting closeness
A creeping isolation
Strangers brushing by
Arms, coats, bags touching
Lives lived separately
Space shared in proximity
Get lost to be found here
Immersed in, surrounded by
Buildings and people
A part of, apart from
A city with a heartbeat
I can feel in my chest
