|Very meaningful verses, Marco.
They remind me of the story of "The Portrait of Dorian Gray."
I, too, am a painter, and am constantly amazed at how one craft
(writing) benefits the other (painting), and vice versa.
We tend to see improvements in both areas simulataneously, because
we are always intrigued by detail...isn't that so?

|The good, the bad and the ugly...
If everything was black and white or
even invisible there would still be something that just didn't fit...However some are just deceivers...

|Marco,I love this one! Glad you wrote it. More, please :)|

|Marco, what true beauty in this, so very much how i'm feeling at this point. I think my favorite lines are these:
We create her
we adore her
until the day when
the veil falls,
we discover the ugliness
that she always had
with fabricated fantasy.
Fatal is the day
the veil is removed,
So very very true.
Un bacio Marco

|I really loved this one a lot! Thanks for posting it...

|Loving another unconditionally, which is the only way to love, allows the love-er to know and accept the loved one altogether, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the lovely. The only problem is that it take far too long for many of us to realize this. Fortunate are those who 'get it' early in life.
My poem, Potential, which you reviewed so accurately, speaks of this very essence of love. My mom always refused unconditional love.... she said it gave the loved one too much license to take 'advantage'... it was a lifelong argument we had.
This is a beautiful piece, Marco... looking forward to reading more of your work.

welcome to authorsden--we are glad you're here
o, this is beautiful...i loved the entire piece, but the words
"...the most visible defects
changes into loveliness..."
how i wish more men felt that way...it seems men want perfection and women will never attain it...how sad not to accept women for what they are
powerful, thought provoking write--well done

|Fatal is the day that our invisioned dreams are dashed and tear...to leave a bleeding heart.
|Reviewed by Lisa Young (Reader)
|My heart stops as I read this, Marco. We all do this thing called "pedestal putting", men and women. When the veil is removed, it is a very sad, sad day, isn't it. The veil, symbolic (seeing underneath) or not (a wedding veil??). We've all lifted that veil. Well done, Marco.|

|This is a lovely and sad verse. Lovely for the rtist who can develope this image and sad for the man who falls fatal to the sculpture. Oft times what we imagine is superficial as we live life as we give it. I hope your lovely lady is not a mere image and that you attempt to go beneath the surface of the matRix to get to the Opal.
Love and peace,

Such meaning in your verses. We do create and then become disappointed when we realize there are flaws we chose to cover over. It is good to see a post from you Tonight

|Excellent Marco! beautifully expressed;-) Men will never learn to stop putting women on a pedastal,they lift her way beyond where she should be and when she falls they can't handle it;-)Best to have a little reality mixed in with the fantasy...|
