  • Chris Mendros (3/21/2007 4:59:00 PM)

    this is insanely beautiful in its simplicity. That old classic profit/loss consideration of a relationship, quietly slipped into her environment.

  • Natasha Ashwe (7/25/2006 8:25:00 AM)

    Balancing, making choices, one over the other, what this life is about. The last part gave me a chill. It's so sad when the person you love chooses to become a wrong one.
    This poem is more sensible than lovely, more wise than beautiful. It's a dart that goes straight to the heart.
