Once upon a Sway

Once upon a Sway

It happened

Once upon a sway

South to North

Made its way

Happenchance cooked up the mess

The ease to undress

 

I knew him

Like palm knows fingers

Crossed my Heart

With his Art

Trending beauty that lingers

Like listless humming

 

He said soft

Words that made no sense

They knocked me

Out senseless

“The promise of your womb dear

Feels like Paradise”

 

Unabashed

We flew through the lies

Bottom up

In and out

Like silk stockings discarded

Upon tiny racks

 

It was done

Like a yearly deed

Fault to none

Bear no strife

We recollect like treasures

Narrow shelves of Life

 

It happened

Once upon a sway

Dimly lit

Memories

They swell up from long ago

Like scene from a No
