Things I wonder...

What's it like,
to be free
to glide in the wind
fresh air to breath

to go to the moon
look at earth from above
or fly over cities
like a snow white dove

or to be a mermaid
deep in the blue sea
with all the fishes and sharks
all the things I wanna do and see

maybe perhaps, to sky dive
falling, cutting through the air
but no, I'm stuck here
where life isn't fair

oh the things I wish
to see and do
seemas so far away
I seem to be falling through

I sit here thinking
of all the things I dream of doing
and drop my face in my hands
as the crest of my tears start falling

I feel I am losing
my dreams of winning
so I lifted my head
"but I'm still trying."

my window is open
just a crack
the cold icey breeze
watching, keeping track

I shiver and think
"what's left of me?
I need a new me
one that's clean."

I write down my thoughts
then re-read them,
I'm like a flower,
but only the steam

I'm not as lovely as the top
I'm on the bottom
the part they don't like
unlike silk or cottom

I feel unsafe, in pain
it's unbareable, unstopable
I'm so sorry,
I'm just ...

Lost, ... in dreamland... and never to return.
just a poem :/ sick of using journals XD

I can relate to the wondering part. I always wish I could fly. Imagine it. Swooping through the air without a care in the world. Nobody could reach you to harm you except the birds. Soaring free. Feeling the joy in your heart and the wind in your hair. The freedom...
dammit, now I'm getting all upset that I can't fly again

This is so nice, it kinda starts for me like reading a book and wondering if you'll ever do the things they do in books, movies etc. The mermaids make me remind of when I was younger en slowly it gets darker. I like this a lot about the poem, like trying to be happy is slowly getting harder and harder.
I just really like this piece, the message, the words the way you wrote it. Amazing
