The Empty Swing

The empty swing; secluded

To be enjoyed; Lord

By two who let it; wait

The empty swing; thaw

Not even that is a reach; believe

 

The empty swing; holds love

To be enjoyed; mate

By two who let it; wait

The empty swing; no solace

Not even that is a reach; fatigue

 

The empty swing; maturity

To be enjoyed; Miss Rose

By two who let it; commitment

The empty swing; monotonous

Not even that is a reach; solace

 

The empty swing; unbearable

By two who let it; unfulfilled

To be enjoyed; embroidery

The empty swing; broke me

Not even that is a reach; answer

The Empty Places


Places no one can fill,
Nothing anyone can say,
Your places, will always be,
Still and quiet, as you see,
Doctors have no pill,
One call of the day,
Our daily time for tea,
No voice now, oh gee,
Living just makes for nil,
Still nothing to play,
Quiet now no glee,
Yours places are even still,
Your places will always be,
The Empty Places.


>Materners Mourn With Tears


>Prerogatives unworthily bridging the gap
Supremacy destitute dangerous pretense
Reminiscently violent indiscretions

Murderous plagues torment spread
Beyond neglecting dangerous pretense
Floods the nations and earth with tears

Knowledge experience underserved
Love compassion undreamed let go
Understanding empathy emptied

Dying character becomes frozen
Dangerous pretense murderous innocence
Floods the nations and earth with tears

Silence murdering chaining innocent souls
Freedom and love passé undeserving opportunity
Corruption restraining soul’s symptomatic death

Murderous torment spreads mourning
Beyond dangerous pretense supremacy brings
Occurrent worldwide mourning from intolerance
Materners muttering unrestrained crimes
