Withering Lows

Notice of absence from swingline
Will be absent for an unknown length of time .


Their love was never possible

It could not allowed to be

So deceptively decant

The way the beach eats the sea


Amist the fields of  flowers

Where no one would ever see

He stripped her heart so bare

She begged him willingly


Exchanging dangerous glances

It made her heart to race

He consumed her every thought

They made it do in haste


But their days began to narrow

The path became unsure

Deceit flared out it's nostrils

For their lust there was no cure


The parting was barely  visible

She went about her way

He chose the other path

That lead down to the cay


She sails in luxurious ships

He sits in a craber's shack

They both turn their shoulders

Always looking back


Their love was never possible
