My Place Is In The Wind

A knot in my heart is twisting within,
Sending ripples of pain,
Even tears don’t come,
So deep is the agony,
Hollowing me from inside.
All I wished was love and laughter,
A friend for life, to stand beside me.
Oh! The darkness! Oh, oh, the darkness!
It engulfs everyone, everything that I weave,
And broken, I’m left behind, again, again, again, again!
There rings a voice, “You had a choice”,
Indeed I did, to break or to fix,
The dangling bridge.
Do I remain hanging by a thread? Ever fearing it will break?
My angst, my pain, my spring, my rain,
The shackles I break,
And dreams do I chase,
The wisdom afar, my madness is my pal,
A wind so strong, pretensions are torn,
Through bleeding of the heart, a fountain spurts,
Resounding in me, my own voice whirls,
OOOHM, Aham Bramhasmi…
The end of this verse,
I AM THE UNIVERSE!
Though everything I loose, my freedom do I choose,
Let’s climb onto the swing! My place is in the Wind!
