    Wow what a woman! Bravo, that's something to remember, I just read about forgetfullness, and can't retain a single line, but yours is truly PHENOMENAL in all its many senses, colors, sounds of clicking heals, proud rise of head, all women should be able to read this poem...even the most beautiful... it'll make them even more beautiful inside. All men too, so that they'll take a second look at what lies behind the body and mind of such a phenomene called WOMAN...Panmelys (Report) Reply
