Sheen and Shine

The shine of a city, so often a mask
  hiding the darkness that lurks just beneath the surface.
A place where people come to forget
  and where dreams go to die.
The bright lights a siren's call,
  luring you in.
But beware,
  for this city will chew you up and spit you out.
It's a jungle out there,
  and only the strong survive.
