Sway With Me

Sway With Me

sway with me, everything sad
Madmen in stone houses
Without doors,
Lepers steaming love and song
Frogs trying to figure
The sky;
Sway with me, sad things
Fingers split on a forge
Old age like breakfast shell
Used books, used people
Used flowers, used love
I need you
I need you
I need you:
It has run away
Like a horse or a dog,
Dead or lost
Or unforgiving.



Poem Sway With Me - Charles Bukowski
