We ran. Oh how we ran.
But first we woke to the bright sun,
Rays of hope finally breaking
Through the blackest fog.
We packed our things,
Objects of the past
Thrown into black garbage bags.
And we took those bags of memories,
Put them into vehicles,
The chains of the past held firm,
His grip was so very tight,
But we triumphed in the end.
As we drove out of town
We felt those chains stretch and break.
We wept the tears of freedom
As we drove to our new home.
Never again would we be bitten
By that white beast Terror.
We stretched our new-found wings that day
And soared on winds of dreams.
His voice still haunts us in the night,
Ghostly blows are forever thrown,
And his influence still sometimes shows.
But he is forever gone from our lives.
I've tasted freedom, and I'll never go back.
I've felt the wind 'neath my wings,
And I'll never land again.
For this is my life now,
And I am free.

amorum vicitur...I think...

This is AWESOME!!! I love the thingie* words (ouch the brain hurts!) ok we both know that I am NOT articulate. I can feel it when you say it, that is the point that I am trying to make.
ps I am making you a picture of a bird in a white bubble with a special poem on the back. You should put it over your head when you sleep. I'm going to give it to you when my semester is over and exams are done.
