The Drumbeat

The mountains echo to the
Drumbeats call, the forests
Ring with their rhythmic fall,
The birds rise into the frost
Laden winds, the ground shakes
Beneath the call...

Drumbeat

I turned you into a Shakespearean tragedy, desperation and ache and horribly sad. Each of your words became a trigger pulled and each of your smiles became a dagger stabbed. Every time you blinked I fell in love and every time you took a breath I felt my heart crack a little more. And I am so sorry. I didn't mean to idolize you, and I wouldn't have, if I had known it would hurt so motherfucking bad. I recreated you as my sun, my moon, my stars and you left me as is, all sharp edges af aching heart and lack of understanding that just because you love someone doesn't mean they'll love you back. I beg the sky above my head and the earth beneath my feet (you and you) for forgiveness.

Drumbeat hearts

I don't know how to love
Two people -
I don't know how
To choose.

The fact is that right now i'm yours,
But i watched him playing today, feeling the music with every part of his soul,
And my heart has never beat that way before.

My breath has never been more taken.

I have a weakness, you see
For people who make beautiful things,
And i could feel the strikes of his drums in my blood -
I could feel it through the floor
Straight into my body,
Until i couldn't tell you where my heart stopped
And the drumbeats started.

My friends promised me that it's only a phase,
And that you are who i want, truly
Because you are who i have
And they're probably right,
But right now there's a part of my heart
That is pumping my blood with drumbeats,
And right now there is a part of my heart
That isn't yours.

Drumbeat and Tambourine Sound

The pharaoh's soul
Ride a ferry
Through the
Umbilical chord
Of another
Cosmos
With a
Steady drumbeat
And
The sound of
A tamborine


drumbeat,  sound,  tambourine.

Drumbeat of a Storm

There is the earthy growl of thunder in the distance
I can feel the electricity in the air
The booming sounds of the storm is like a Drumbeat
It gets in my bones, moves me in a tribal rhythm
I am dancing, not to the storm, but with it
I feel so alive, I feel like I could never die
I am immortal, I am pure power
Lightening is striking the ground all around me
Sizzling and snapping at the air
Then, silence...
I return to the world of the mortal


drumbeat,  storm.

Shotgun drumbeat

I'd finished
And was leaving
On my way
Back to the street
When i heard
That shotgun drumbeat

I turned back
Found a corner
Ordered whiskey neat
Then i heard
That shotgun drumbeat

Something came alive in me
And something else just died
I don't know how to tell you
I couldn't if i tried
Something came alive in me
And something else just died
It sliced my soul in two right then
A gap, ten miles wide

Eyes closed
Waiting for
A table with a seat
And then i heard
It once again
That shotgun drumbeat

Twenty minutes
And i was sitting
With a coke and crown
Waiting, wishing
For that
God damned
Shotgun sound

Something came alive in me
And something else just died
I don't know how to tell you
I couldn't if i tried
Something came alive in me
And something else just died
It sliced my soul in two right then

I listened
To the music
But, i never
Ever heard
A sound like that
Shotgun drumbeat
I'd been muddled
In the words

Full out attack
Like Keith Moon
Back in the day
I'd never heard
The music
Never heard
What it could say

Something came alive in me
And something else just died
I don't know how to tell you
I couldn't if i tried
Something came alive in me
And something else just died
It sliced my soul in two right then

Closing time
Came quickly
Faster than i would
Have thought
I told myself
This feeling
Would never
Go for naught

Now awakened
By a drumbeat
I was living, fresh, anew
I could no longer hide
That shotgun
Killed off something
Giving birth to something too

Something came alive in me
And something else just died
I don't know how to tell you
I couldn't if i tried
That goddamn shotgun drumbeat
Made me feel alive
I can't describe the feeling
I couldn't if I tried


drumbeat,  shotgun.
