I lost two cities

I lost two cities,

lovely ones.

Both because of the men I loved when there.

I had to leave them, had no choice but to flee.

From Paris' grandeur and Londons greatness.

Away, away....

Was it the cities or the love I lost, or both,

Because of one another gone.

Maybe I will return to their vastness but not to the loves or the men

No they are long gone.

I lost two cities lovely ones

away, away, away.......

I loved this. Elizabeth Bishop's Art is one of my favorite poems so it really drew me in with the use of her line "I lost two cities, lovely ones". Definitely made me want to read further and see how you explored the theme.
