The Escape.

I spent all my life in solitude and mused it might be fun to fly
through the plains and over the pools; la la la..... lalalala
I told the wind to come along; he shook his head and said to me
I have a job to cool the heat, so who will spread the scents for me.
Lonely and sad I turned away, my eyes still searching for companions
I looked around for butterflies; they turned off the offer to seek flowers

I saw my star with smiling eyes; I prodded and begged to come along
My angel with that golden wings; snuggled in with a song and dance
The dove inside the bar-less cage; flown in with her broken chains

We swished on through the mountain mist; nuzzling so close to each other
we saw the sun in morning streak; and saw it drown with colours so bright
we swam in pools of bluish green; the water so cold and clear like glass

Days went by like shooting stars; we giggled and flew like Robin chicks
we ate the fruits of blue berry and drank the honey from apricots
we forgot this world and all worries; at last, we had to rest awhile

We slept beside in a lullaby tree; happy and dreamy with smiling eyes
I felt the warmer breeze on me; I woke up slowly yawning aloud
my Angel, Star and Dove were gone; skulked and left me on the road,
I saw my wings are clipped so short; my softy feathers ripped in haste
with all my hopes in darkness; with tears and agony eating my soul
I looked around the barren land and followed my destiny, all alone.
