To walk the earth,
And never tire.
To see the world
In all its splendour.
To run my hands
Through sparkling water.
That is all I ask.

To shun the demons,
In the dark.
To be myself,
Not play a part.
To seep myself
In living art.
That is all I ask.

To find a meadow,
Breathing green.
To close my eyes,
See the unseen.
Be one with the stars,
Absorb their sheen.
That is all I ask.

To fall asleep
Escape in dreams.
Run to a land
Of evergreen.
To explore the fathoms,
Of the deepest sea.
That is all I ask.

To taste the song
The planets sing.
Lingering on my
Blood red lips.
To rid your heart
Of pain and sin.
That is all I ask.

To smile as I
Open my eyes.
Blinking in the
Newborn light.
Harrowing memories
Trapped by the night.
That is all I ask.

Golden flames
To warm my soul.
Protect me from
The winter cold.
Stay with me,
Till the new is old.
That is all I ask.

    1. As always thank you for the read. Also, you pretty much hit the nail on the head. The way I recite it in my head makes the tempo and urgency increase in every stanza. 🙂
