Requiem - Poem by Hana Blackflower
I raise my head and stare at the sky
I try to grasp a star
My fingers flex, close round the air
A million miles too far.
I brush the fires that light my home
with my wav'ring, determined gaze
but all the happiness that's up there
to me is just a haze.
I try again to take the night
into my trembling hand
the gentle dark, it turns away
and falls like grains of sand.
With teardrops - diamonds- falling free
I bite my lip, and know
That I will never touch the skies
Never return to my home.
And there's my life - my brothers, sisters,
Up there beyond the clouds
But i shall never return, i know
so i use my hands to shroud
my eyes, so sad
my heart, so heavy
my blood, running cold
i'll never return
to the place i call home;
so only death will suffice.
