A breathe of fresh air

by Michael   Jun 5, 2017

I whispered to the wind Of my
hollowed misery
plagued; with perpetual loneliness
without you here.

As I lay to sleep; drapes
flapped and twitched.
A feeling aired the room with a
craved presence;
A divine curiosity.

The wind came whispering; purring
empathy into my ears
of my shared sorrow.
Cordial swirls comforted,
Soothing my solitude.
Caressing my madness.

An enigmatic; entity.
So surreal, yet so serene.
A sense that you were here
with me.

I closed my eyes to see you; picture you;
to vision your beauty.
I felt a ripple; penetrating right through me
nursing my wound of emptiness.

a gentle flurry lifted,

Sweeping us up into a mysterious gyre,
our sibylline souls twirled as as we danced
unto a whirlwind romance, which I wanted no end.

A saddened calm came to rest.
I slumped into a sombre lull.
The wind softly wavered and faded a farewell
Carrying you upon its stream.

I hope and pray we will whisper once again.

For now...

I feel a sense of solace; with a feeling so sublime
which aids the neglected void
within me..

....a little.

But from then until now,
I will, no more
throw a caution...


give my heart and blow
kisses to the whispering wind.

    A romantic poem of yearning extremely well penned. To my mind you are becoming one of the more accomplished poets on this site. Your use and knowledge of the English language is evident to all. There is good imagery, stanza’s are well constructed and contain some great lines. The use of “twitched” in the second stanza comes to mind, loved that!

    A breath of fresh air has so much sadness and pain.
    The words are so soothing to read and then move from one verse
    to the other smoothly making it such a lovely read but within this
    sadness lives and breathes...touching write.

    Congrats on the Win!
