|Our minds have amazing architecture, just anything fits inside, we, our lovers, our thoughts, all capable of striking conversations across different times.
I liked this evocative offering, especially the last stanza.

|Gene, this is the sad tale of one crying out for a lost loved one. She lives still in the murky backwaters of his memories. And in the hush of night, wkith the wandering journeys of sleep beckoning, she lives still. The warmth and glow of her, vivid and near. 'Til he awakens, with only the shadow of her lingering in his mind. Your words grip the heart and emotions tightly and reach out and touch the stark face of reality. A moving and very emotional work you have crafted Gene. May love and peace be yours my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|The longing is palpable, as is the desire. It wrenches at the heart. A well-written, albeit heartbreaking, piece. ~Elizabeth|

|Mmm, a well-kept mystery! Attractive, lovely atmosphere. Yes for a song, maybe worth developing (this piece) more in the same genre.
|Reviewed by Brandon Petit
|I love, love, love the rhyme scheme in this! Catchy and flowing yet not overly infectious or "sing-song". The vaguely erotic darkness of the poem's language is also very enticing... The last stanza is my favorite, but all of it is really good. My favorite poem of yours so far.|

|This is a beautiful and gentle poem, Gene, with or without music it tugs at the heart.

|... you've been working out, poetically speaking, Gene! Just a wee while ago you left a comment about me "teaching you rhyme" - well here you go AND THEN SOME! This is beautiful mystery and romance, beguiling, captivating and rippling through the shadows of the heart, mind and night like a sweet-smelling fragrance. You have used strict form to maximum effect and it's a beautifully woven pattern of repetition and rhymes, leading us on from one slight shift of mood and circumstance to the next.... and then the on-going haunting of "and you're touching me unknowingly" that lingers.... Spine-tingling stuff! Don't know about the music, Darlin, but the voice has just gotta be Nat King Cole.... achhhhhhhhh swooooooooooon :)) xx|

|Such longing in this, Gene....beautifully done.|
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|Yes, there's style and superior delivery here, established trademarks of Gene Williamson poetry, but there's longing and heartache, too,
and this I feel beyond measure.
I'm saving A Shadow on My Mind to read again many times.
|Reviewed by Regis Auffray

|Conjuring up what you want to happen is a nice way to deal with rejection. The dream, hologram as it were. Spirits are out and about and are eager to do our bidding.|
