Gone - Poem by David Harris

For Laurie Hill
who suggested I write this.

are the effervescent curves
of buildings that served
as lover's dreaming posts
in generation passed by.

in the march of progress,
the landmarks of our youth
disappearing under bulldozers
and an expanding population growth.

is all the heritage
that we grew up with
during our youthful summer
that was vacant with tears.

like our youth
disappearing into nostalgia
with all the things we loved
only leaving stains in our memories.
