    Quiet as the grave upon which we swore ourselves

'on which' instead of 'upon which'?

    "Quite as the grave we swore on

    Timidly, squirly, and indecisive"?

It's a great draft. If you modify the rhythm, though, you could make the structure for a few more verses! I really do like the codas at the end of each stanza.

Thanks for the feedback. I really hate that line about the grave. It doesn't work well. I wrote this years ago, I'm sure, so I don't really remember what I was thinking.
