Blowing Wind



Blowing Wind

A wind blows
 through my heart
 as it did once before

It has taken away my love
 with treasures
Unexplored

In a field of green
 our passions flowed
 deep within the heather

We pledged our love
 within the meadow
with promises
of together

THE galeS blow on my soul
Unrelenting
And forever daunting
elicit to the sun

Filled with lust
and ripen offerings
before we were done

Forbidden
 of her skin
 AND the dropping rain

 Angst is IN my heart
 forever floundering
 in a new world of pain

 For the SUN'S light
 no longer shines
 on our love
 where it pools within my eyes

 It becomes the DARKNESS IN my life
 as the squall rages by SILENTLY
in the dimness of my cries

 THAT DARKNESS has taken away
 all desires of her passion
which I did adore

 As a wind blows
 through my heart
 as it did once before

Norman Wilson

IntroductionForgotten are the times the tick of a clock once chimed sobering sounds that caressed my hearts nightly dreams. As I awaken to the touch of light that burns upon a candles wick flickering my words for all to see. This drives my thoughts through the darkest of nights of loneliness that renders my quill upon parchment with ink that dances to minds and souls.Now I hear the screeching of my heart when the blue horizon covers the orb of emptiness.Within the shelter of my mind with little, purpose other than my words that keep me sane. These are my new poems I have written in the quiet of my night, forever wished away in a writer’s pain. As I strive to write that perfect poem that, my soul desperately seeks. Then and only then can my words rest upon a sleep. more…
