I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter." Inception.


Pink rosy cheeks illuminate throughout
Her brown cute freckles dance across her face,
But often beauty has a lot of doubt,
I wonder if with her this is the case?
I see green eyes, they say we need to talk.
Her hands move slowly towards her lovely mask.
Into the brisk November night we walk,
With every hopeful word, we tend to bask.
We see the stars light up the shattered street.
She brushes silky hair away to view
Her lips say words I never will repeat.
I merely utter one more, “I love you.”
I dry her tears, for she is half my soul,
Yes, love can take a very heavy toll.

I enjoy the end of the poem. The whole poem is well flowed and constructed. I enjoy the detail. Nice work.

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” ~Robert Frost

I'm not as fond of the beginning so much as the ending. Gotta say I'm really fond of the last line. How true it is.

I think why i might like this poem os much is because it draws inspiration from the idea of of a solitary "girl", at least on the literal level. It's where I draw my inspiration from as well.
