The Lost

The Lost short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

The sighs of loneliness
Did you hear not
A life without wine and women
Is bored
Iaid the bar keeper with
A sly grin,

A star winked at my window
Seeing my emptiness
I sighed for the nostalgia
I wonder who sings the same
loving tunes of the past,

I shout at you lark
Do shut up thy black lips
Cos’ my love is laid
With the dead.

Lost Passion
