As The Pendulum Swung


As the pendulum swings and it gets so low
It penetrates the skin and the pain grows
I get a tear in my eye but not from the pain
I know now that I'll never hear your voice again
The pendulum gets lower and my intestines fling
All that's in my mind is the last time we were speaking
You can't save me from these chains or this dangling steel
Yet you did help me
Your words did heal
You cured my broken heart so you were all I could think about
As the pendulum swung.

    This is an amazing poem, probably the best you have ever written. The emotions sweeping through me as I read it were so deep and it's like I could feel your depression myself. Amazing, kevin. Keep writing.

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
