|This is a great exercise Dawn, finding inspiration in an old movie and trying to guess the exact emotion and motives of the characters.
I love the "morning crossword" look, I can almost see it.

|You have such a good intuitive feel for the emotion of the moment in capturing the essence of this movie. I enjoyed it.......Jerry|

|Dawn - This poem reads like one of the classic movies. Love that first stanza and how the rest of the poem expresses that fear that if the narrator shows her love too honestly that the loved one will be overcome and run in fright. - David

|You have an amazing talent for expressing your characters' feelings. You manage to develop them in such a short time; you give them an authentic feel. Plus, those feelings are complex, just like ours, which can be difficult to do. One of your many talents shines here.

|Beautifully penned, but not routine: each poem from you is a wonder of perfection: no wasted word or movement. :) Well done, Dawn.

|Yikes, this poem is tight, concise, deep, powerful and somewhat sorrowful all wrapped up within a sense of tension which gives it it's strength. Your physiology here is enviable. Well done. Hugs, J'nia|

|Gene and Gina and Kate took all the words out of my mouth (for a change, sez you) but your words stay, Dawn, and are all too real and quite powerful.

|...you held me captive Dawn...powerful poem!|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|Can relate greatly to the ambivalence in this, Dawn. As always, your psychological studies of our most intimate moments as couples are so clear and sharply focussed, speaking volumes in so few words. I am always in awe of the way you are able to totally capture personalities that are fully developped in our minds with just one or two well-observed, deft images. You leave us with a sense of both trepidation and anticipation - great writing, in other words! :)) xx|

|I love old movies - I'll have to watch for this one! I agree with others that "the air hangs thick with all my unsaid words" is terrific and all too relatable.|
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Written with such depth of understanding ,and splendid use of words.
I too saw that film;-) love the old ones,nothing made today matches them.
|Reviewed by Gene Williamson
|Some great lines here, Dawn...
yet the air hangs thick
with all my unsaid words.
There's something terribly wrong with the guy who would run
from Lana...or you.
|Reviewed by Cryssa C
|Your first stanza is my favorite, but you portrayed perfectly those moments where time stands uncomfortably still & the air is crowded with words and thoughts colliding without a sound.

|Very nice, Dawn. I know one certain person I feel that way with at times. It's so uncomfortable and you stated the concept admirably.|

|She was a force wasn't she?
and your insight here is moving,
I especially like:
"yet the air hangs thick
with all my unsaid words."
A good one dear Dawn.

|Loved the sexpot Lana even if she did kill her lover and let her daughter take the fall. She always did go for the rough trade, too bad I was too young for her . . .
I liked this / It moved me because of the Catch-22 she found herself in / Wanting to move toward her goal, but deathly afraid it would case him away. Yep. Good.
