|Like a haunting memory, this one lingers.
|Reviewed by Regis Auffray
|I like this very much. It's a common occurence but you do bring to focus the fact of the loss that's happening. And it seems to me the one who is leaving is the loser here. Thank you for provoking my thought process, Jude. Love and peace to you. Regis|

|So subtle. Reminds us of how we don't have to be lonely just because we may end up being alone. (Love the use of "To prevent this arroyo
In your dreams"--funny all I can this of is the Spanish word for "rice" but that's not what you're talking about here, (I had rice pudding with dinner this evening. . . . In any case, this is so reflective, and just like you to remind us we can be free, or captive, by our pasts.

|This evokes such bittersweet melancholy and sorrow, Jude. One many people can resonate with. But then, everything I read of yours is that way.

I am with Robert on this one, a 'smiilar wave-length' seems to be going on. Excellent work of art Ace.
|Reviewed by M.Bennett Hooper (Mikii)
|So much depth and feeling here that most can relate to at a similar given time. BRAVO!!!!!!|

*Very similar 'wave-length' my friend ... exceptional write!!
|Reviewed by J. Pajot
|Sad and yet beautifully expressed. To have someone of great import just wander from our life is unfathomable, and you have expressed that feeling of helpless loss here, with an understanding that the other party seemed totally oblivious to the whole thing. As always, emotions so openly and well presented, Robert.|

|Reviewed by Kate Clifford
|A lesson given in such a uplifting way! Sometimes the one's that flow away are just a refection of ourselves that we are still unaware of. In time the true mate will match with us as we gain this awareness :-)|

|Reviewed by Katy Walsvik
|Oh, my, Robert... this hit a bullseye, directly between the eyes, perfect shot!
You are always so much more than words... there's a mood, an accessibility with a deeply honest and human knowledge in what you write. 'a sigh takes over your heart' invites kinship... who hasn't been there...? BUT... your phrasing of it is where the magic of meaning dwells. As I read, I felt. You're good at that. katy xox.

|Your words state so clearly that, within a relationship, communication is everything. Why do people guard their heart from the ones that they love and not share their feelings. If we are not capable of being open and honest, no matter how difficult it may be, then we really should refrain from forming partnerships. Part of give and take is revealing not only your heart but your soul as well. The one you love does not have a crystal ball to tell them what is going on in your head. Very good poem with a solid message, Robert.
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Hey Robert great piece of reflection and insiightful memories of what if?
|Reviewed by Andy Turner (Reader)
|Now look what you've done to Nordette.
This sure does speak volumes, of how cheaply some folk treat relationships, regardless of the betryal, and feelings for the one they -loved-?
|Reviewed by Tinka Boukes
|Sad bittersweet thought provoking piece Robert!!
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|I don't know what it is about some relationships, in that words seem to just mess things up and get in the way of something that goes much deeper, that exists on a non-verbal plane. Miscommunication has more to answer for in the progression of relationships than what is ever spoken, I reckon. And, of course, as you imply here: actions so much speak louder than words. Life sure seems to follow the path of misdirection rather than positive choice sometimes: you begin to wonder whether ANYONE is actually doing what their heart is feeling when it really comes down to it. It's amazing how many moments of revelational clarity can be gleaned from just one second's pause to take that view out of the window... This reads like a hall of mirrors that pass the reflections back and forth ad infinitum. Word of the day: arroyo!! Sums up the mood of this piece completely. TY Kate xx|

|Another creative masterpiece. I hate using hackneyed terms but with you this applies. Great word pictures that create a sense of melancholy. You seem to have been able to enter her soul. Poignant ending that lingers on...
Great work Jude

|Listen, Jude, stop driving by my house watching me look out my window. Or are you flying by on that winged palomino? Okay, Shaman, that was a neat trick and an even better poem. ;-) ~~Nordette|
