Please Take Me Away

February 22, 2010
Please take me away,
Let the sound numb my brain.
Please let me escape,
Let me run from the pain.

In excitement I sway,
As I pack up my things.
I leave "home" behind,
To see what life brings.

My footsteps are soft,
Drowned out by the rain.
Will tomorrow be better?
Or did I try in vain?

At the train tracks I stop
But the rain keeps on flowing.
I sit myself down,
But the rain keeps on going.

My feet are all sore.
I've been walking for hours.
My body is cold
From the icy rain showers.

My things are all wet
And my matches wont light.
Is it getting dark?
Or am I losing my sight?

It's dark, I can't see
And the rain's all I hear.
I sit on the tracks
Full of sorrow and fear.

I sit there and weep,
Try to block out the rain.
Then the lights are right there.
I didn't hear the train.

Please take me away,
Let the sound numb my brain.
Please take me away,
Let me run from the pain.

This is really pretty, and sad. I really like it and I can't wait to see what else you will write.
