Take Me Away

Take me away
from the environs
where I now stay
like in a desert
on an isolated island
far from the touch of neighbors
six feet away
Under the taps
washing hands and face.

Take me through the forests
burning and pull me
as fast as you can
let the fires scald my wings
or take a chance
how the blazes over look
the innocent me
Just take me away
to the far fold distant horizons
where in the battlefields of God I play
unknown even to Almighty
who rules beyond eternity
My infinity

Let him embalm me
if he does so wish
fry me like a fish
butcher me like a lamb
take the toll of sacrifice
as much as he can
after all I too am human
Never to live till times sunset
Or the twilight before the night

Come let’s go out and now play
Corona may never run away
till another day if not today
some day

Take me away

like in a desert

six feet away
Under the taps
washing hands and face.

Take me through the forests
burning and pull me
as fast as you can
let the fires scald my wings
or take a chance
how the blazes over look
the innocent me
Just take me away
to the far fold distant horizons
where in the battlefields of God I play

Let him embalm me
if he does so wish
fry me like a fish
butcher me like a lamb
take the toll of sacrifice
as much as he can
after all I too am human
Never to live till times sunset
Or the twilight before the night

Come let’s go out and now play
Corona may never run away
till another day if not today
some day
and a newer generation will be born
all know COVID 19 will also be buried
it has also not to all times married
nor born for ever
as one may say

Fly into the newer environs we may
but as for now
just take me away
today
now or any day

Time evades none

author comment

Ok, I see that a lot of the time you post what would have been a comment which a lot of people have already read on stream in a comment. I understand your work to be very original but in this case there is no element of surprise, you did ask. When you write a wonderful poem put it on stream as a poem without writing it into a comment for someone else's work. That's just my opinion. I believe you to be a strong poet and I know what you are capable of doing.

Lovedly now to your title ,

Take me away

For example the first words that came to mind are straight jacket, because your work is very unpredictable.

Do you see what I mean. I am willing to help you when ever I can ok? Now I think we could be pronounced as friends. And here's another review look how wonderful this is without the end that speaks of covid, you surely almost always have more than one poem in your work.
