Half my life, I was adrift, Flowing like a feather in air, Following the wind, Riding the tide, Never stopping, never did I care. But the winds changed every so often, Taking me places I didn’t want to go, Showing me sights of doom, Things I couldn’t ever un-see. I could turn, but I […]Read more "Drift"
In the crowded streets, And in the dead of the night; In the beats of that old song, And in the fear in his eyes; I could hear them call out, They were calling my name.
