The first time I penetrated your borders,
I hesitated. We were strangers,
plagued with emotional disorders.
I left you and continued my life
After you denied our connection
and put through my heart a knife.
Now, after our reunion, I’m on fire.
Burning away the doubts and fears.
I need to stop becoming shyer.
I penetrated you so deep
and discovered a wealth of unknown
For losing grasp of it I weep.
I’m satisfied but left wanting
spiritually full, bodily empty
my senses you keep taunting.
Let’s enjoy this one last night.
Let’s keep this one memory
Thank you for everything, my love.
Thank you, New York.
