I stand here with my back to the city,
listening to the wind howl it's lament.
The lonely song stirs my soul to pity,
as slowly my head nods in agreement.

The vast belt of stars seem just as alone,
in the black emptiness above us all.
This wind puts a chill into every bone,
as over my dark mood it casts a pall.

I used to think wind was an empty thing,
a terrible beast with an awful thirst.
I hear more as I listen to it sing,
so full of longing that it nearly burst.

Closing my eyes, I let it blow through me,
that wonderful cold makes me feel so numb.
Taking away my pain lets me feel free,
and at peace with the thing I have become.

Soon this numbing wind would be on it's way,
to take away pain from so many more.
Turning to the city I face the day,
more than ready to even this last score.

Your words give beauty to the passion in depression. I love this piece, truly.

Sounds like a soul lost.If only the wind could remove the pain.
