Poetry Friday: The Drifter by David Poe

April 4th, 2008 (06:32 am)
awake

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Angel score music

Your friends accommodate your darker phase
Then you find it's been a hundred days
When's the last time you remember feeling safe?
You're surrounded by assassins in this place
But you wanted to be here and I'm amazed

If I appear in every story that you tell, that you tell
How can you say that I don't know you well?
Wasn't I the one that caught you when you fell, when you fell?
How can you say that I don't treat you well?
When I'm ringing out your name like a bell, like a bell
How can you say that I don't wish you well?
I wish you well

- selected lyrics from The Drifter by David Poe

The slant rhyme in the first verse there picks up well from my post, yes?

It's so sadly beautiful.

The first time I ever heard this song was in concert. I associate that performance with it.
