Tire Swing


Reckless abandon, back before fear;

She knew he was leaving, but not for how long.

He always played with her on those days.

She knew he would come back.

He always did.


She had no fear of flying away from or toward him

She had no fear of being out of control.

She trusted still.

She had no fear of falling

Or spinning, when someone twisted the rope.


Soon she will fall.

Soon she will spin.

Soon she won’t trust.

Soon she will need control.

Soon she will fear.

About Jani

Jani grew up a gypsy anachronism, spending her early life taming her wanderlust. She clawed her way into the real world eventually obtaining two highly unpractical degrees, two children, six figure student loans, and a sarcastic wit that is matched by few. She now lives in the Walterverse where she received her MSW at a ridiculously expensive University. She followed this achievement by spending thousands more on even more useless letters to put after her name. Her future plans are to pay for the useless extra letters after her name as a super heroine. In the event that plan doesn't "work" out, she plans to return to her roots as vagabond gypsy busking in one way or another.HuZzah.
