Swing Sets and Adulthood

World spins
Blue of child’s eyes
Whirlwind of innocence

Teach me to feel again

Chain links
Hold me a heartbreak away
From a fractured arm
Or leg
Mom always said to drink more milk

Teach me to learn again

Fluff of cotton cushioning
Above me spread out
Windswept
Just in case I let go
And fly

Teach me to love again

Dizzy mind
The world spins
Carefree hands gripping gravity

Teach me to live again

Heart stops
Momentum deceased
Time to grow up
Back to reality

Teach me to be young again
