We joined together, the day she mate,
Moving along the highway street
Tired and exhausted we held our way,
Preferring to stay and rest for ever.
The food came by, so did the water,
Shelter was free, none to question ??
Swimming abode the refreshing pool
We slept on red, cosy and calm.
At times we heard the sudden thud,
Pulling me away to another side
Cursing the reasons a million times,
I laid my back to another rest.
Landslides and waterfalls around my world,
Distracting my life with dreadful pains
Clinging onto myself on that eventful rope,
I held on still and hoped for peace.
Added on with flesh, bones and torso,
I learned to live in hurricanes and snow
Warm and humid the world shrunk small
While I grew up slow, edible and fresh.
I kicked her once and many times again
To leave me free or perhaps to say,
“Do you with heart keep yening for me,
Awaiting to break this slimy shell”.
Thinking of death my mind did quiver,
Kicking again, the trembling shiver
I lived in here and grew so big
Familiar are those, the forgotten days.
One day they hooked a massive fork
Killing me here and into the death
How bad I need the days I lived
So easy and free, the days I lived.
