The wind (unconditional love)

If every breeze was
Set out to touch
The contours
Of my sleeping face
Soothe the tears
On my cheek
I pray to God and
Hope the wind to take me
See the wonders
Those only birds had seen
A private sanctuary
Virgin forests
Luscious evergreens
Let me taste the water
Flowing upon
Its coldest streams
The clarity of my reflection
And everything underneath
If paradise existed
Please, let there be
Plenty of oases
And the tears I’d recognize
Would be this pouring rain you bring
The anger in me
Will be gathered as
The roaring thunder
Yelling at the amorphous
Heavens
Save me!
‘Coz the tears I’ve cried
Too many times
It’s a weakness of mine
Then, the wind disappeared
I was stuck
In the middle of stillness
Air, there wasn’t any
I could not breathe
The wind turned back around
Kissed my cheek
I asked
How do you it
Content at being unseen
Love takes a lot of giving
We’ve been primed so much
For reciprocity
