About To Go

I've really been
In very cold places
But this is colder
I wasted all my strength
Against the northwind
But the northwind made me stronger
I'd really like to stay here
To wait for the wolves and dance with them
But deep in my heart I know
I can't remain here much longer

I don't care
About where I'm bound to go
I'm moving to where the breeze don't blow
Don't you give me your broken useless things
It does matter if you did
I would throw them to all those junks
That I want to get rid

What I long for is your kiss
Are your lips what I do miss
I'm moving to where the wolf sleeps
And when it wakes up
I'll be able to listen what it speaks
And when it wakes up
Then the breath of the beast
It will cease

Charm me with a tender lullaby my dear
I can't remain for long in here
The dusty road is waiting for me
Soon it's there where I will be
But don't you wait for me
You don't need to get an enemy
Maybe you won't see me
In more than a year

Poem of the Day

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
