AMY ON MY MIND

AMY ON MY MIND

your face etched
on the circuit board of my memory
tattoo arms too emaciated
to enclose the child of your desire
you draw an ugly smile
on the horny channels keen
showing the progress of
disintegration
swaying on the rhythm of beer
and drugs and sex
not meant for fun or relaxation
I see you standing there
in the center of the arena
I look in your wide brown eyes
no sisters of mercy at your side
only oversexed wild animals
money-grubbers with hungry lips
ready to suck the last drops of your
uniqueness
bewildered you shade your eyes
loose hold of a derailed life
twisted legs no longer obey
the commands of a disrupted band
I realize my silent crying
strong arms pull you away
from the stage that was not yours
