I Long - Poem by Ruth Lennox

I long to spread my wings
And fly far away from here
I long to wake upp late at night
To hear you whisper in my ear

I long to join the angels
And play poker in the air
I long to walk nude along the street
Yelling, 'Guess what, I don't care! '

I long to dream of sugarplums
Plucking them from thin air
I long to just toss warnings aside
And put the dye into my hair

I long to fly above the buildings
And look down with scorn
I long to attend just one funeral
Of someone's passing which I do not mourn

I long to join the devil
Beneath the rocky Earth
I long to have a child
But not be there at birth

I long to live a life
Filled with nothing but the truth
I long to go back in time
And change my name from Ruth

I long to feel the sand
Beneath my toes at night
I long to be able to see a candle burn
But not to see the light

I long to be able to see
Just what the future brings
I long to be able to manipulate the past
And to change certain things

I long to see the ocean
Outside my windowpane
I long to see the sun
But not to feel the rain

I long to join the ghosts
Of a thousand friendly foes
I long to be able to dance
On ground no-one ever goes

I long to spread my wings
Above the tress; soar high
I long to spread my wings
And take to the night sky
