The East Winds [a poem by Melissa Holden]

Never trust the East Wind

she’s there to carry the secrets

that you and I,

the whole world, in fact, possess.

She will take you to hidden coves

and caves filled with gold

but she’ll take away

the love you did once hold.

Her transparent grip

will pull you across the seas

on pirate ships and warm islands too

but your beating heart she will always freeze

because the East Wind is bad for you.
