Poetry Friday: The Drifter by David Poe

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

Listen to the entire song at David Poe's MySpace page, where you may also read all of the lyrics. Watch the video on YouTube.
