I want to go




I want to go
To a far away land
To live as a perfect stranger


As I look into a hollow future
I wish to sew it down with twains of hope
While walking through the strange streets of masses


I want to go
To an abandoned sea shore
To talk to the waves and the sand



As I wish to distract myself
From a past, that haunts me every day
I wish to start my life from the scratch somewhere


I want to go
To a frightening villa
To shed all my fears to the darkness


As I wish to see scary ghosts
To learn about their agonizing experiences
That prompted them to be blood-sucking spirits at nights


I want to go
To raft down a violent river
To play with the thrill of life at the edge


  
As I wish to be in a team game
Fighting for a common cause with all might
And to feel the egoist-spirit after taming the river


I want to go
To a humor festival
To laugh on my knees as they crack jokes

As I find joy in faces all around
I wish to fill my heart with new dreams
While writing about the cheerful images I have seen


I want to go
To drench in a rainforest
To shed all the tears in the stream of rain


As I wish to baptize all my sins
By embracing, the divine drops of rain from the sky
While searching for new meanings for the torture called life

Love this last stanza:

As I wish to baptize all my sins
By embracing, the divine drops of rain from the sky
While searching for new meanings for the torture called life


And I like the one about wanting to meet the ghosts, as well.

Thanks.When life gets tougher, sometimes its not a bad idea to take refuge in wild dreams to feel better. :)

I love the interplay of phictures and words -- and then that "baptismal" conclusion. Well done.

I love your dreams and hopes. My feeling is never stop dreaming nor writing about them.
This is such a vivid wish list.

Glad you shared it with One Shot
