Concrete Mistress

nyc2

The moment I met her she had my heart
When I was merely a wide eye child
She stole that heart held it firm in her hand
With reckless abandon our love ran wild

As I reached my prime she drew me in
Down the moonlit romantic streets
Seduced with the beautiful mysteries
Enticed my soul with heavenly treats

Lured in with her voluptuous secret
Oh the places she brought me to see
I swore to her my complete devotion
Allowed her to exert her magic on me

She’s my concrete mistress I love this city
I left her flat now I wallow in self pity
No matter what happens she’s always got my heart
It couldn’t last forever we knew it from the start

Left my home just to get deep inside her
We shared a love of the nethermost bonds
Together for always, now and forever
Along the boulevard of our beau monde

But all good things they must come to an end
Luxurious maintenance soared far too high
Packed all of my things and I then I moved out
Across the river where I stare and I cry

When I walked out the door she acted so livid
Vowed that with tears I will rue this day
She’s New York City and she’s my mistress
I wouldn’t want it any other way

She’s my concrete mistress I love this city
I left her flat now I wallow in my pity
No matter what happens she’s always got my heart
It couldn’t last forever we knew it from the start

New York I Love You!

Many years have passed
All has been forgiven
We get together often
It seems we both are driven
I recall all our days together
Best days I ever had
As I stare across the river
It always makes me sad
My city she’s a lady
Alive in every way
We shared a life together
I love her still today
Broke her heart when I left
But mine hurt so much more
The city she’s my mistress
And I’m the cities whore
I think of her so often
She always made me smile
I miss the way she held me
Showered me with guile
But still we have our memories
Relations of love and hate
I’d reside inside her if I could
Won’t say that its too late
******
And I feel guilty not being with her
On that day she was attacked
My love for New York City
Goes far beyond abstract
Every time I see a vision
Of the mighty towers slide
It hits me in the stomach
That day part of me had died
Some people call her thoughtless
Some people say she’s shady
I know who she really is
New York she’s my lady

New York, I will always love you
