A bird in the sky

Let me fly, my wings wide open
the gush of air against my bosom
past the hills and meadows
over the castles and rocks
no worry on my chest, no hurry on my breath
afar afar beyond what I can see
tears rolling down my cheek
pain easing through my neck
the joy of flight in my plight
only if I knew my day is to end
the sun in the sky about to go down
into the darkness I go, into the depths I go
shadows of agony falling on my skin
memories and thoughts rushing into my skull
I see no more, I hear no more
my body aching to rest
in a cave of silence
where I lie awaiting my death
only to wake up and fly again and again.
