How,My Love?

March 31, 2012
Love breathes in,
So faint,
Setting flames upon a heart in denial,

Now contentment slumbers behind eyes of silver,
...And beautiful.
But how will it last?

When temptation waits outside the dream we've created?

Whispering lust into our words,
Keeping intimacy as distant as Heaven,
So far away...
Night disguises the color of our passions,

They beg release...
But how will they fly?
How will we see?

When we've been so blind?

Very very relatable and true. The style you have is constant, but not tiresome, which is very good. It's unique, but the repetitions are well placed. Very good job. 5/5

Firstof all, I just want to tell you I bsolutely love this poem. I love the way it flows with passion and insecurity. I really enjoyed the way it really tugged on my emotions, and as I read it I felt them move along with the poem. This is a very touchy suject with most, the idea of a loved one, being so intimate, and yet so distant. I, personally, believe that you have captured every girl's insecurity and rising question of "Is he truly 'The  One'?" The bottom line is,... (more »)
