City of Unnoticed lumps

I still hear the silence of my heartbeat and unspoken loneliness which still cages me in dark isolation

Even in the massive crowd,
and under dozens of neon lights
and lighted street lamps,
Even among the loud chants
of basket-laden sellers
of cheap toys and snacks,
desperately needing the people’s attention,
Even among the sounds
of cutlery and frying pans
from smoky food stalls
bearing newly painted banners
about their delicious foods
in very reasonable price;
I still hear the silence
of my heartbeat
and unspoken loneliness
which still cages me
in dark isolation
despite that the city
is crowded with the greasy apartments
and the newly constructed towns
and the pamphlets,
bragging about the
futuristic projects in pipeline
for Connecting people together
calling them “our home”.
So, pity me,
that even in the noise,
I still hear whispers.
