Freedoms Way

Where to start.
Hack at my thoughts,
drive me to out places.
Slur my speech,
drown my sorrows.
Crap let me smile!
Jump inside,
this gilded cage,
bars that bend,
nothing can hold me.
Your fire scorched me.
A path never trodden,
go to hell, I will walk away.
Take all, you slobber,
away with false truths,
I am free, yet tethered.
Your tongue still moves,
wrapping me tight.
Friends cry my name,
if only they could feel,
the pain of the years.

I watch now water falls.
Birds on the wing.
Secret thoughts of mine,
walking away from you.
Each moment a dream,
scourge, quiet lapping,
as a cat with milk.
You have lost,
you cannot dream with me,
I am alone yet full.
There are far things,
seen and held close,
these are true thoughts.
No dangling promise,
a reality of satisfaction,
cloaking my soul.
Here is the new me,
cluster around my form,
touch me only when I need.
If I can stand more pain.
Now I am stronger,
leave me let me go.
Why do you cling?
I will shake you free.
I now have the energy,
here touching my soul.
A new life form.
A picture you cannot paint,
now my gallery is full.
I am now in ecstasy!
Goodbye..

this is a different from you, both level and theme wise I guss.
I hope it's all fiction like you're experimenting lately, though I can
feel some raw emotions. But who dares to hurt a gentleman just like you?
I doubt any one will do.
Be well dear Ian.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Yes this is fiction, but I guess there are many that would like to shout these words.
Just as you say I try new things, as often as possible, hope it wasn't too much like a shopping list, this is what happens sometimes in this sort of write.
Thanks again, I hope your people are all OK out there, my thoughts go out to them,
Yours Ian.T
