Drums for the lost

Go down

Drums for the lost Empty Drums for the lost

I forgot I wrote this ???? It is funny that you go through old material and find a frame of mind? or space in time ? ...anyway...........

For The Drums Lost

I lost my face in a place

And like that place, I have no face

I cant remember

 
I lost my arms in a place

And now my shoes that have no lace

Are like my chair, that needs no rests,

for arms to place

 
I lost my eyes in flashing light

In a place where cocktails lace

With gas like mace that scars the face

And steals the sight to give you night

In day


I could not breath in a place

Where men’s contorted limbs embrace

In huddled form they span this space

In corners sharp and restless mind

Of ones we left behind

 
I lost my love to a place

Where men with arms and legs and face

Stayed behind to take my place

Crept behind my marching pace

Showed her love within my haste

Now lost in memories wasted space


On mantels, firelight, pictures grace
