Come swing with me again

March 16, 2019

Where have you gone my close companion,

the chains that secure me, swing no more?

Left dangling, I wait for your re-arrival,

to cradle and feel your flesh I adore.

Barely a breeze this hour hath moved me,

I crave joy to resonate through my chain.

Sweet memories linger forever after,

of you rocking my old and fragile frame.

I long for you to climb up onto me,

as your perfume lingers upon my links.

Like a wild pendulum, you left me swinging,

perpetually trapped, like an Egyptian Sphinx.

redundant in this ghost-like playground,

not one child’s whisper doth remain.

Until a siren echoes all through this valley,

to my delight, we are rejoined once again.
