Swing, Swing, Swing

   by Anna Harrington




Swing I swing,

Up and down,

the beat of my heart,

the rythm the sound


...
and the winters chill




The abrasive seat

Of the swinging swing,

Carries me back,

and in with a sting


Swing I swing...
Now its touching me,

And it won't let go




Swinging there,

My swinging ends

Against the cold-

Water's friends

I ceased the waiting,

Though I promised to not,

I knew you'd come back,

Then I simply forgot!




OH Love will you ever...
But now you wake me,

Away from my sleep,

You pull me out,
Of the watery deep

  1. 1. Swing, Swing, Swing by Anna Harrington Swing I swing, Up and down, the beat of my heart, the rythm the sound I breath in and out, My heart in an ache, so full of doubt, it quivers a quake Swing I swing, The wood and rope creek, The cold air brushes- Across my cheek So cold, and so naked, I am so alone, Just me and the swing, And the frost in my bone Swing I Swing, It is all so still, except for me-
  2. 2. and the winters chill The abrasive seat Of the swinging swing, Carries me back, and in with a sting Swing I swing, It is you I miss, Your soft wet lips- I long to kiss Swing I swing Gently I cry, I long for your touch, Don't leave me to die Oh My fingers so frozen- Oh My eyes so wide open- My short quiet breath- breathes in the chill, My body shakes, For a warm embrace, But I just swing- swinging still I touch the water, Below my soul,
  3. 3. Now its touching me, And it won't let go Swinging there, My swinging ends Against the cold- Water's friends Drowning now, But I don't care, The water colder- Than winter air Above the surface I see you now! Dismounting your horse With sweating brow, Oh how I gave up! How easy did I And now you're here but 'tis here I die! SAVE ME LOVE! I SEE YOU FROWNING! DON'T YOU SEE ME DOWN HERE DROWNING!
  4. 4. I ceased the waiting, Though I promised to not, I knew you'd come back, Then I simply forgot! OH Love will you ever, Forgive me! And find me! Release me! And bind me! Love me! so kindly! Live me! so lively! Kiss me! don't mind me! and save me! so finely! Oh but now, you go away! You fade to a blur! The darkness envelops you! What terrors occur! The water! It chokes me! I long for breath, Yet It teases; provokes me! I stare into Death! It is dark. It is quiet. Nothing, nothing, Nothing but quiet
  5. 5. But now you wake me, Away from my sleep, You pull me out, Of the watery deep Take me in your arms, Hold me tight, Lay me down, And kiss me goodnight What is this that your doing? oh what a terrible thing, you letting me go, Setting me on that swing! Leaving me here? And leaving again? When will you come back? OH MY LOVE TELL ME WHEN! You hold me. You make me promise, Promise to wait- or nothing at all. "Promise?" I do But oh how much wrongness I do, But for you? I do. I do. Swing I swing, I love you my Heart, My Honey, My Dearest, and now we're a part Swing I swing, The hope barely in me, I'm waiting my love, Oh love please hurry!
