I miss your coffee-covered breath,

Early in the morning.

It made me hungrier than death

For a thrill without a warning.

I miss your sweet saliva smell;

I miss your cigarette-stained lips.

Your yellow teeth as well,

And your garbage-covered hips.

I miss your solid-brick bones,

And the places my secrets hide;

Like in that park near the stone

Where my innocence resides.

Why are we apart?

Oh, awful, tragic pity!

The travel broke my heart…

I miss my New York City.
