Sleepless in Lagos

From the top of this 22 floor building 

Lagos looks almost peaceful

Bright lights canvas the street

From the few homes and businesses that can afford it

The buzz of traffic is gone

There is only silence

And the steady beating of my heart as I take in the view

You could almost forget the madness that it was 2 hours ago
