She wanted to know,
Wanted to feel the warmth
The embrace
The kindness
The caring

She wanted to be needed
Kindness unknown
The feeling of being felt for

She wanted so much
But so little
To run away from time
To feel the wind in her hair
Her smile
Her touch

Untouchable in her own world
Away from madness
Away from poverty
Away from hate

Sounds of pain
Drenched in blood, sweat, and tears
Muffled by curses of unhappiness
All erased

Something that makes her want to smile
Give someone a hug
Or maybe just laugh

Joyfulness embraced
Like a touch of honey to her lips
The smell of an exotic flower as it reaches her nose
The warmth in the laughter of an infant

Like lemonade on a hot summer day
Or hot chocolate on a cold winter day
Something that makes her happy

In an instant snapped
Gone away from there
Free here

Creativity here
Like a chain broken around a beating heart
A barrier demolished by human kind
But different

The sound barrier
Than stopped
Sound barrier broken

Love is her soul

Concluded is her dream
Back to life
Back to reality
Bound to the ties that wound around her ankles and wrist
What she calls torture
What they call life

She wonders how to leave
How to escape
What to do
What she wouldn’t give
But all she could do…
Was dream.
