I’ve lost, II, draft no. 2

I’ve lost my taste for sin

I’ve lost my need to win

I’ve lost precisely nothing

God can’t breathe to life again.


I’ve lost my need for writing

For helping, or for men

Lost my need for knowing

they’ll think well of me again.

Lost my need for fashion, for reading, for print

The only things I haven’t lost are those

God has put within.
