I Will Break Free

One day….soon
I will break free
Free from this body that imprisons me
Free from this mind that torments me
Free from this heart…oh….
This heart
This miserable weak despicable thing
I will break free from this heart
That will not be still
That loves on an on
With every beat 
Sending blood coursing through veins
Only to prolong suffering
Free

What is this life?
There is no place
No place for those who love
Unconditionally
Strongly
Who are honest and true
Naïve and unused
To the games people play
To the things people say
That are just words
Just words…..
What else is there but words?

I will break free
And I will smile
And dance in the sun
And make love to the wind
And play with the flowers
Keeping away from the thorns
That pierce my soul
And make me bleed
Free…..

I will not let you bind me
Forever…
Oh what a pity
For you will never see
The beauty that was at your fingertips
The love that would carry you
To your old age
When all your hair is gray
And your body is feeble
The love that is constant
That would follow you
Even to the foot of the grave
And make your passage smooth
That would plant little kisses on your face
Gentle as a fairy
The love that would sing to you
A little lullaby
That would quiet your fears
And the chest that would 
be your pillow
As you close your eyes
A smile tugging at your lips
as you hear the whispered promises
Of a rendez vous
On the other side
In the land of light

Pity…..
It is always hindsight
That is the clearest
When it is too late to make amends
When it too late to revel in
The purity of a soul
That was your very own

Yes, I will break free
Don’t look for me
You will go high and low
I know
I know it will be so
You will hear my sighs in the wind
You will feel my kisses in the rain
You will feel my body in the sea
When you dip yourself in me
You will try....
But you won't be able
To hold on to me
For finally
Finally
I will be free.

    Richard...You ARE incorrigible! Are you ever serious??? I mean like...if someone were to blow out her brains, would you crack a joke? Oh...crack would go if she were going to crack her skull by bludgeon herself with a metal pipe...dear dear...OVER DRAMATIC..as opposed to OVER COMIC! I think both need help, Richard? How's that for a POINTY question??? ;)

    Well, this was my haven, Richard. My escape from the pressures of life, which of late have been many...however, this place has its own set of problems...as does every community. Utopia does NOT exist....Poets are humans after all! No superheros...No saviors....just humans with their own set of foibles and issues...the only magic? Their words...the only cut above the rest. Thanks for the visit. You should know better than to ask pointed questions....

    You have written an anthem for the ladies. You have such a way with words Eileen, nothing short of spectacular. Time for bed, good night from Canada.
