Secrets

Among the ruins,
stories linger
The ones we know,
and secrets, too
Warrior stones,
fight against time
Bandaged with moss,
chivalrous knights
Guards to a house
held up by faith
Within these walls,
the chorus sings

Sway

Feet off the ground,
dangling down
Clinging to ropes,
that do not bind
A wood plank seat,
my captain’s chair

Nothing but air,
back and forth sway
Wind in my hair,
breeze in my face
Toes to the sky,
heavenly ride
