An Inch


On a fading sight of beauty
An inch away from tenderness
An inch a way from deadness

    words as long as an inch can travel miles and touch someone's heart beyond the soil one steps on... beautiful gift you've made us... thanks (Report) Reply

    The moral must be 'a frustrating inch away from that which we desire may as well be a mile' and for those of us who often suffer from insomnia an inch away from sleep is deeply distressing. An inch away from love, seems like a knife etch for any afraid to take the final leap or afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. Loved the deeply moving images of 'An Inch' too far to obtain.

    An inch away from being a real poem because of the lack of rhyme scheme. Nice ideas..nice stream of consciousness style. Good vocabulary. Needs a few more little bits of clarity within the inches of perplexity. (Report) Reply

    Emotions are what guide us through lifes journey... The ability to capture them for all eternity in the form of the written word is truly an art... Congratulations... I love your poem... (Report) Reply

    reminds me of a broken heart that longs for that lost love but is gripped with so much fear, they can only dream and wish.

    this is so heart felt.

    keep writting sweetheart. this is so full of passionate reasonace (Report) Reply

    Very fascinating. I love how you've captured the barest escape with the repeated reminder of a mere inch and inching away. Delightful. Intriguing as well....seemingly referring to forbidden pleasures. I enjoyed how you depicted it all so cleverly with just an 'inch'....Excellent! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
