Others

There have been others.
Conveniences, really.
But, no one has undone me
with a look
the way you do,
made me ache
with a smile,
the way you do,
enveloped me
the way you do
without even trying.

I came, I saw, I scolled. Nice poetry. Very clear. Simple. Evocative. Sparse.
Love them.

Surely there is lovin', and then, dammit, there's Love, erasing all prior history, making only Now count. You nailed it again with those neon Manolos.

"Conveniences, really."
That's a harsh self-insight that really shows the poetic eye--its easy to look dispassionately at the flaws of others, but to understand our own,and how they feed or detract from everything else, quite rare. I identify with that line, and all the others. Excellent piece that is totally on target.

Wonderfully worded. Reminds me of how I felt about my late husband. ...no one has undone me with a look the way you do..." brings me to tears. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Namaste..........cj
