I rewrote (or revised, in a way..) An old poem I wrote a few years ago and posted on my old account. (Courtnee25). I actually liked the feel of the old one, so I used the same emotion to express myself. ...orItriedanyway...
I would love all comments and feedback! :)

The Wind


Can you see the wind?

Infinite, sustained, omnipresent, elegant

Relentlessly tossing all within; defying gravity

But welcoming new birth, to which it donates breath

It carries disease; can freeze

Can singe, can burn you, can hopelessly turn you

Can you hear the wind?

Cutting through the silence with a sharp ripping breath.

Whistling around you, surrounding you,

Dazzling you, arousing you.

It is destructive—yet productive.

Furious, euphoric, timeless--historic

Can you smell the wind?

You should, for it might suffocate without even a sound

Soft, gentle, caressing, suppressing

Sometimes, in fact, it is even depressing

It might be beautiful, and wistful, invigorating

Yet when I wear up my hair it is awful frustrating.

Can you feel the wind?

Blowing you away with its powerful ferocity,

Yet welcoming you with a warm curiosity,

It causes destruction,

What else is expected?

Silence would imply the Earth ever rested


What else but the wind?
