Running out of Days

Running out of Days

Put on my favorite dress
Legs below strong and bare
Wandering streets of this town
No longer drawing stares

Again see sun shining
Clouds float across blue sky
Birds soar high above
No longer cry to die

Breezes caressing hair
Rain stinging my face
Soft grass tickles bare feet
Dreams of a living place

Running out of days
Locked within hells walls
Clock ticks away hours
Waiting for angels call

Thanks for the help Rob :)

    Excellently penned cindy!

    Really well written and very emotional in parts. I think many people will relate to this as we are all on borrowed time in one way or another

    This is one of the most unique, moving poems that I have passed by these days..

    the wording was such descriptive and i felt like i was walking beside you.
    sharing your feelings..feeling your emotions and being touched by the word choice.

    the title took me right away..and oh how i can relate to many..many..many points. Through the weakness in this poem only shows me how BRAVE you are. that you are FACING it.

    the hopelessness I felt only showed me the FAITH you have. that you are sharing it.

    i am moved, I am touched, and I have added this to my verrryyyy favorite poems.

    I love itttt..oh i love you!

    we will discuss this piece ^_^
