Thoughts unbound – Part II

a poem by Pavithra Natarajan

Run away misery
Come to me light
Rekindle my faith
And put travesty to rest
Go away hate
Don’t purloin my hope
In myself I see a reflection of fears
I badly need respite

Come to me love
Embrace me in you arms
Envelope me in your warmth
And soothe my nerves
Love me nature
Caress my cheeks
Never dance away
Else I will feel bereft

Help me find the wind beneath my feet
Carry me over the rising wave
Oh! how I feel like a feather
As I soar far away into the skies
