arms wide
I lean against the wind
that blows across the atlantic
how long
before you let me go?

    Good use of touch – I could almost feel the pressure of that wind. I like how this is a narrative that is open to interpretation: Does the narrator strive to leave, to return home perhaps, or is she/he fearful of being dropped by the person they address?

    Ah the wind and the rain are not always the only things pushing and pulling us are they? It can be indecisions, or other people in general, or one in particular, from a parent to a lover. Great visual, and intriguing concluding two lines.
