Help me with my poem! "The wind and the trees"
« on: November 01, 2013, 03:03:33 AM »
The wind and the trees


I kiss their bark
once, perhaps twice
I blush, blink and smile

Then I ignore
I look away
whispering, stiff and bored

Longing and loneliness
disbursed like leaves
I inflict in order to be relieved

They are wilted and bent
it is the best part
gusty and sharp
I am the wind without a heart

Hi
This is really not bad. I would drop the last 5 lines and finish on the word leaves. The title is little dull too.

This is a poignant little poem, quite well-written and atmospheric. I would suggest replacing 'disbursed' with 'dispersed' as disburse means financial distribution. Keep writing.
