Necessity of Feeling

Lost within a fog of light
as a fiery spirit burning bright
adrift upon a dry south wind
that seeks only the sun

Wanderer who makes the choice
to never voice the feel of loneliness
that he has built his life upon
as he burns within
the desert of his mind

while howling, his heart seeks out
an instinct that might turn about
this course of his destruction
and he pauses, listening

for tonight the wind will sing
in gentle rain
cleansing, cooling and revealing
the necessity of feeling
in a life
