My City

My City

A Poem by Nix
"

Written for the 'Thoughts' picture contest.

"

 

My city is an ambient warrior

a glorious mess of memories embedding themselves like past lovers into my heart forever.

She is a thousand beats effortlessly composing a million songs,

each that of a Mozart symphony, each as compelling as the next.

She, so shamelessly faltered becomes me with her honesty,

beholds me with her imperfections and accepts me with mine.

She, my city

a beautiful maze I once sought to escape in search for something better,

and now I long for those memories,

I pine for her song, her flaws and her acceptance.

I long for her

my ambient warrior,

my home.

I like to think of this poem as a metaphor for what we have built with our lives. It is something we have had help with and have enjoyed as we continued the work. Appreciation of the past sometimes only comes in retrospect. Nice poem.
