It's just the wind

Shivers, up and down your back

Such a gaze makes your mind go slack

The bitter cold of catching that one's eye

Worse than an outright lie

It's just the wind

It's not like you have sinned

 

Warm, comforting, a childhood friend

A hand given out to lend

Consistency of serenity and ease

Sympathy and repose in the highest degrees

It's just the wind

If your eyes have dimmed

 

Fast as your heartbeat in panic

As wide and far as the Atlantic

Turns into something slower not smaller

As wild as fear, but much stronger

It's just the wind

Unseen but not unnoticed

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
