My first thought when I saw ‘Swallow’ was Capistrano but I went the other way 🙂


A bitter pill to swallow

He’d never felt so hollow

Rejection never easy

Left him feeling queasy


Unable to swallow his pride

He deliberately hid inside

Unable unwilling to speak

Of the loss he’d felt this week


The woman he’d loved was lost

Wedding invitations embossed

Sat glaringly taunting him still

It was completely beyond his will


To toss them away like chaff

As though they were an epitaph

Written in stone, his loneliness

Her loveliness lost, so odious
