A SOUL TRAPPED IN AMBER

-INSPIRED BY THIS PIC CLICKED BY ARUNDHATI CHATTERJEE....:)


n yes this is not melancholic....:P




LAUGH, AS MUCH AS YOU CAN
PITY YOUR HEART OUT FOR ME.
BUT PITY IS FOR YOU, NOT ME
EVEN THOUGH, I AM A SOUL TRAPPED IN AMBER.

YOU THINK MY LIFE IS BOUND IN THIS TINY BALL?
THEN YOUR THOUGHTS ARE WORTH NOTHING AT ALL.
CAUSE I TWIST AND TURN, WITH EYES WIDE OPEN
TO SEE A WORLD BEYOND THIS GREEN SPECTRUM.

I LIVE WITH WISH AND WITH HOPE
AND WITH THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY I'LL SURELY ELOPE.
YOU SEE YOUR WORLD FULL OF MISERY
BUT NATURE'S BEAUTY AND GLEAM IS ALL I SEE.

MIRTH AND HAPPINESS SEEM COALESCING IN ME-
YOU HATH NO EFFECT ON ME, FORLORN STYMIE!
PROCRASTINATE ME FOR HOW LONG YOU WANT
BUT I AM DESTINED FOR WORLD, OUTSIDE OF THIS BOND.

I'LL GLIDE IN SKY, AS A CARELESS BIRD.
FLOAT THE SEA, AND DO THINGS ABSURD.
WALLOW IN SNOW, FOR NIGHT AND DAY.
GALLOP LIKE A HORSE, AND DO THE WIND AWAY.

LAUGH AT MY QUEER WISH, O WHY?
IF RAPUNZEL WAS LUCKY, SO CAN I.
SO PLAY WITH ME FOR THE REMAINING TIME-
SOON I'LL BE FREE, LEAVING THIS PULVERIZED CHIME.
