Swing to Wings

The sun kissed her cheeks
and danced in her eyes
Pulling the swing ropes
With hopes she would fly

Disappointed she jumped
High up in the air
Landing on her feet
Like a cat you’d swear

She built wings to wear
To jump off the swing
She gained a few feet
I heard her heart sing

Tell me why you cry
Let me help you touch the sky
Jump from your aerie, fly

Thrill Killed

Dead fly lying on the window sill

Going up and down, around until

Realizing he’s at a standstill

Finally destroying his life’s will
