b.jpg (646 octets)


At night
high above the city
sitting on the edge of a rooftop
several stories up
wishing i could spread my wings,
and catch the oncomimg breeze
whispering softly in my ear

it's as lonely as i am
the cars beneath my feet
seem close enough to touch
i am a giant
overloolking a vast playset

i'm above my problems
alone the distant, frustrating thoughts,
the memories,
the winter,
i wish i could fly higher
away from this place
away from these buildings
