My City

My dear beloved city.
You hate me.
You love me.
You tower high above me;
And yet you never look down
On me.You’re always around
When I need you.
Sometimes we fight,
Playfully like old friends
Sometimes you stab me
From the back
Right in my heart.
You kill me with your cruelty
Because you know
I will still love you.

My cruel,heartless city.
You’re an old friend
Who understands my pains.
And like a twisted nemesis
You exploit them.
And leave me reeling
Time and again.
And as I fall,you laugh
Like the sadist you are.
Because you know
I will still love you.

This is beautiful. Very raw, but that's how it should be. I like the way you end it- "I still love you". Keep writing!

Really really beautiful words. This is almost like a song...the tune of which is left to the reader's imagination.
