Just leave me alone
To contemplate the wind.
The wind knows no boundaries
Feels no pain or loss
Can delight or destroy
Is enigmatic and elusive
Changes course without warning
Has no heart or soul
Feels no regret...
A little bit like you.

Not just wanting some quiet time to contemplate, but to deal with a devastating hurt . The lines "Has no heart or soul, Feels no regret, a little bit like you" tells of the perceived betrayal. Well written, Connie. Hope all is well~ Warren:)

All is well, but pain purged through poetry has a cathartic affect and helps one release anger. Thank you very much for seeking out my Please poem Warren. I appreciate that very much. Cheers, Connie : ) xxoo

I appreciate that Messoh. I was upset with my mate and vented through this poem. That is why the metaphor. ; )

WOW!!! Great impact in this free verse Connie. Also , I wish to thank you for your kind comments on my Italian Sonnet. Somehow it and one other poem I posted just disappeared, so I had to re-post them. Elaine

Thanks a lot Andrea. I entered it. It just has the minimum of the ten lines required and he mentioned he doesn't care for prose, but mine is free verse. Fingers crossed. I am enjoying my day reading poetry. Please forgive me messing up the post at PFT with your poem. I think I is all there. It didn't look like that when I posted it. I don't know what happened? It is the Feb. PC poem list. : 0

I vent when someone upsets me, through poetry. Fortunately not that often. Thank you Daver. I hope you are doing well. Much Love on this Valentine's Day. Connie

You really surprised me with that ending line! Very poignant. You describe a complex soul, and even more complex emotions with this introspective piece. Love the enigmatic mood of this.

Thanks a lot Andrea. It got an N/A in the dark contest. Guess it wasn't dark enough. I really appreciate the fave. Love, Connie

It's okay to be this way too. For you write about something sad, I mean. An interesting take on the wind. The wind can be fickle, but it also brings us some warm weather at times. But also snow.

I wrote this some time ago. It is meant to be a pure metaphor. I love the wind, but sometimes it can destroy as ell as delight. Thank you Duke. I appreciate your comment. Aloha, Connie

A lovely write, Connie! The wind can be very inspiring. I get on well with the wind, except when it's too cold and when it's raining! I also often turn to it for inspiration. ~ Regards // paul

I am laughing because I just wrote a love poem about when I met my mate. These contests keep one going, don't they? Thanks SuZ. Hugs, Connie
