CARRY ME AWAY
(show me how to fly)
I Look towards the sky,
a raindrop falls from the heavens into my eye.
I look for answers, but see none in sight,
I look past clouds with all my might.
My existence, like that feeling when you are half-awake and half-asleep,
I can’t focus enough to notice if my heart continues to beat.
I beg you, extract my soul from my body before it’s too late!
Bring me to your kingdom and let me live inside your gates.
Torture my thoughts no longer! Let me think freely!
When I arrive, please send someone who is happy to see me.
I wake up everyday and feel like I have died again,
death is evident, the only question is, when?
There is only so long a person can believe,
blood from another cut continues to bleed.
I hope you have heard my wishes,
all I know how to do is preserve my life with poems and pictures.
Reach your hands down from the sky,
carry me away, show me how to fly.
