I lie in sleepless
Slumber waiting for you to
Carry me away

To a better place
Where I can love and be loved
Without consequence


The author's comments:
As I'm typing this up, I realize it sounds like a love story, but I really wasn't thinking about love when I wrote it. I suppose I'll just tag it under "love" anyways.

I really like your poem, it was very moving to a lot people including me. I think you should keep going on writing more poems. So that way you can make your dream come true.
