"But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think."
-Lord Byron


The wind caresses my hair as it desperately tries to lift me up.


It whispers seductive words in my ear as my heels lift of the ground.


My tears soak the empty, black space beneath me.


My secrets twirl around in great dizzy circles.


The wind whispers something to me as lost hopes pass by.


I give in.


Then it happens.


I go up, up and away as I stare down at the black hole beneath me.


I realize I was not happy there, not free, unwanted, just a misfit.


I spin around.



I am free.



Darkness no longer envelopes me. I am lost in the breeze, one with it.




I am the wind.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem one day that I was feeling particularly trapped in my life and just wanted to share it with other people and hope it makes them feel how I feel. Free.

Always one with the wind . Always free ( :

There's always an escape route whenever you feel trapped, but wind helps too, I guess :P
