……..

That one gentle breeze, 

felt hardly

by skin too trained, 

for reality. 

.

Doesn’t blow you away, 

but makes a way, 

for dreamy light

to touch your gaze. 

.

Doesn’t speak to you, 

but seems to say,

“Stay up this night

let the tears surface.”

.

When dreams don’t seem

enough

to fill hollows bereft

of love. 

Loosen the corseted 

breath of life, 

and the barbed fences

of cold and strife. 

.

Lose your strengths, 

and weakness, along

the musical breeze

of a bittersweet song…

.

Let go of the weight, 

of emotions ignored. 

Let go of the tears, 

and the wounds be cured. 

.

Cry for each 

unreasoned thought, 

for answers yet

to be sought. 

And don’t worry, 

they world’s asleep. 

You can cry away 

and cry a lot.

      1. Well..Victorian references..corseted, bereft?? And a general restrained quality in tge piece that the period was known for.:Majesty was a bit of overstatement but I liked the sound of it so it stayed put😝
