For One More Night

 Set me free

For one more night

Where I can taste

The bliss of flight


And feel my wings

Upon my back

Before I have to

Give them back


Before I return

Unto the night

A life of slumber

Without sight


To wait within

My gilded cage

To live forever

And never age


To live in heartache

In freedom’s want

The cage of gold

I’ll forever haunt


So tonight I’ll fly

And soar and hope

That I’ll learn

Of how to cope


And while I fly

I’ll remember this

The taste of heaven

And starlight’s kiss


So set me free

For one more night

Where I can taste

The bliss of flight


I don’t know where this poem came from. I don’t know why it speaks to me, when I’m the one who wrote it. And I certainly don’t know why I felt sad when I wrote it.

It’s funny, how, sometimes, the words just appear on the page for what seems like no reason. Like your just a tool for your own imagination. It’s a weird feeling.

Perhaps I’ll just sit down to write freely more often…


About Michelle

I read, write, sing, hunt rabid giraffes, play volleyball, and play guitar. I love my big Alberta skies, wheat fields, and camping trips in the summer. I love to travel. I'm secretly a nerd. (Read as, I watch musicals, read Harry Potter too often, and can quote most of the movies I watch.) I love to be out in the country, riding quads and bikes, and just getting away from the city. I love the friends that I have and I try to be as loyal as I can. I've been writing since I was little, and I love to do so. It's a passion of mine that I hold close to my heart, and I love to use it to express the way I feel, or freeze a moment, or a feeling, in the time that it occurred. I also lied about giraffe hunting. I usually only hunt mosquitoes.

    loved it Michelle. i get that u know. there are times when ur overwhelmed with emotions and u let them run on paper. i still dont remember writing half the things that are present on my blog. but this was excellent none the less.

      For sure! Sometimes, when you’re just able to sit down, and just write whatever comes to mind, certain things, certain words just come onto the paper. And I appreciate it! Thanks for reading!
