~Bound~

Updated on January 10, 2012

~Prologue~

When echoes of distant relatives call out from the grave...


Source

~Freedoms Whisper~

I unfolded my wings as I begin to soar

above streams of clouds till I could

see earth no more

then slowly gliding downward

against a moonlit ocean breeze

captivated by distant echoes

calling out endlessly

jolting, bursting, breaking free

vibrating against the tips of

my tender wings

I rested on the skirt of the

tumultuous sea

listening to the song that had

beckoned unto me

Here, here I am, Trapped

beneath this cold gloomy grave

Here, here I am, Bound

by these old rusted chains

I trembled, whimpered, sobbed

as the echoes called me by name

I knew in that moment, that time

nothing would ever erace

the murmuring of my pain
