Escape

She looked down from the mountaintop
Wanting desperately to leap off..
Wanting to fly..
To spread her arms and just fall.

Not a care in the world.
Not a soul to care for..
No one to care for her..
No one left to understand her..
No one to listen to her pleas..

Pleas of sorrow, Pleas of pain..
Head hurting so bad..
Eyes swollen shut..
Not a tear left in her to shed.

Free....She will be free
Fly away little girl..

And be free.

Wah buddy. I loved this poem soo much. I have the same name as you which is pretty cool, I feel so proud since you are by far the best poet ever! I could totally relate to that poem. All I want to do is escape from my world and just fly away to a better place, with better people and better choices and decisions. Keep it up Lori!

sometimes i want to fly and find i can't. i have to keep waking up each morning and always wish that i could just fall, escape, not have to care anymore. or that someone somewhere could hear what i hear and listen to my pleas.

i love yourpoem. i've been working on a ceramics project for 3 months. it has a flying dead faerie holding a tear drop and flying in the rain. the peice's theme is supposed to be suicide. i've been looking for a poem to put on it for a while, and this is the perfect poem. it's so beautiful and simple.
