    Not to burst bubbles, but I think it's kind of odd. And maybe a little derivative. (Report) Reply

    This is the kind of poem I like to read, and read again and let it speak with its own words to me. (Report) Reply

    What a shame it is that this poem, which has been on the site since 2006, just now receives attention. Man, this is a real poem. I'd likely give my pretentions to write a piece this emotive and sense-rendering. I hope this poem doesn't wallow in obscurity. It has too much soul for that. (Report) Reply

    Ben-

    in stride here, i think. not blind, adolescent love, but a thoughtful, very adult mulling of ideas - as careful to examine the meanings of the loved one as ones own.

    brooding, yet an underpinned lyricism.

    now we're cooking.

    Ciao, Ben!
    Simple yet speaks volumes.
    I think often a great poem is precisely that-compact & clear.
    Love your stuff...
