I miss the air…
I miss the tempest sandstorm
And the choking desert dust
I miss the thunderclouded sky
Miss the cool night breezes
Flowing cross my face
Beneath the stars

I long for stars,
Sparkling in the dark sky
The radiant moon,
Growing, living, dying
Always changing, always same
I’d die happy
If I could see it all once more

I beg you let me one more time
Swim in a river that runs free

Please let me play in the ocean sand
I beg once more

Let the sun shine on my withered frame
Let my ears hear the sound of a living thing
Let me taste a wild fruit that no farmer grew

Don’t let me die in this darkened cell alone!

But the time is past
For the good things in life
For the riches beyond compare
And I’ve done what I’ve done
And now this is my lot
I have drawn the bitter share

I always knew that I would die
That there was an end to this life
But I hoped against hope that it would end
On the point of an enemy’s knife
And not chained away from the rest of the world
In a cold dark cell… alone
I didnt like the former version of this poem. So I fixed it to my liking.
I suppose I wrote this because I feel a bit trapped myself with work and home situations and such.

anyway, Enjoy and please comment.

Great imagery, I can really relate to this too. Sometimes I feel so trapped at school. Week after week after week, two more years then what future do I have?

College is the most awesome thing that could possibly happen to anyone... if you get in a good one.

It just made me remember the stars, and the river. It's beautiful because of the way it makes me feel. I was really happy there you know.
