What Never Happened - Poem by Joshua Swanson

You come home, late at night
The evening's so dark, there's nothing in sight;
You've never thought to yourself, how badly things went wrong
Then it occurs to you, you never could have won.

Everybody has a great secret to hide
It burns through their hearts, longing to get outside;
They want to sell it out, but wish to hold it in
They always should have thought about what never happened.

You go to bed, wishing just to be alone
Then the phone rings, as you let out a groan;
The person on the line shouts out his austere greeting
You just have no idea what is his meaning;

Everybody has a great secret to hide
That's why they stay in the dark, so no one can find;
They can't run away, but can grow ever slightly
So big and so strong, they can get ever so mighty;

As the man explains his horrible story
One of love and deceit, one that ends so gory;
You can't open your mouth to answer the interrogation
'What is this? ' you force. There is no relation.

-This is not finished-To be continued-
