Favorite Quote:
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged cupid painted blind." William Shakespeare.

New York streets are quite a sight
Beneath the street light's glow
But the pain and misery here
Is what you'll never know

You come here for the luxury
To see the endless lights
But beneath the realms of beauty
Chaos slowly fights

The colors will enchant you
You'll never want to leave
But there's evil that hides
Up this city's sleeve

I've been a broken victim
Of this city's games
And once New York is through with you
You can't hide the shame

You come here for the prices
While I'm begging for your dime
I used to be just like you
But the memory is lost in time

Beneath the silent beauty
There's a deathly pain
You think these clouds are never gray
Just wait until it rains.
