    dotsSwingset (My Ritual)dots

    Long after dark
    In the shadow of the moon
    Sits a lone kid
    On an old swingset
    In the dead of the night
    He swings back and forth
    Back and forth
    Would you belive
    That child is me;

    The dark gives my mind a stage
    To relive past events
    And dream of options not taken,
    The silence gives thoughts time to clear
    And the cool air gives my wounds room to

    Lost in my trance
    My hurts can heal
    My mind can dream
    My heart can feel;

    And even though the place is public
    This time is mine
    Only mine

      I know what you mean. Though I don't use a swingset, I usually feel that waty driving at night. Sometimes just being alone in my room is enough.
    You have a few mechanical errors, "back and foth", "My eart can feel;" "and even thoughthe".
    You might want to work more with punctuation, but you don't have to.
    I really like the theme of this poem.
    "The silence gives thoughts time to clear
    And the cool air gives my wounds room to
    I love those two lines. Nice job, polish it a little and it'll be great.

      I used to love to swing when I was a kid and could stay at it all day. Mom would have to call me in at supper time, just as it was getting dark.

    And you're right.. you can fly away with your thoughts in the air and it seems that that time is yours, and yours alone.

    It's a shame (on my part) that I don't take time for that anymore. This poem made me miss it, and long for that simple time in my life again.

    Nice read.

      Well there are a few errors, but I liked it. It jus reads very nicely. There is this melancholy tone to it and this good feeling near the end. I like.
