I stand stripped and you looked through my skin

You found something familiar that speaks of places I have been

What mouths shall whisper, eyes shall prevaricate.

With this stark contradiction, how can I begin to compensate?


Housed in this temple for so many years.

Making frequent deposits of knowledge and fears.

You have all the answers that you know to be true .

I am far too transparent to hide them from you.


I crawl, when I should walk to superintend.

You ask me for nothing and you realize my thoughts I won't defend.

Any tears that I cry are not for myself.

Mine are quiet and shed with far more stealth.


I am running on empty, it's what you may call fate.

Please offer nothing that I can not reciprocate.

My feelings, my dear, are not yours to placate.

When I am finished with them they will simply dissipate.

what an insightful and soulful write. loved the rhyme scheme as well, it looks like it was a difficult write, but it came out wonderfully! flows nicely, with a good, thoughtful message.

Wow...very powerful words there, Robin.
Well done.

Creative and thought-provoking. Assuming it is autobiography,
you may be "running on empty" in terms of the relationship, but
you are definitely running with a full tank creatively and
intellectually. B r a v a !! 'Pea' <3

Asking me to take an entire poem and condense it to a sentence or two I am not sure is fair but hey I like a challenge as much as the next women so here we go.. it's about a jaded women with some communication problems and a man that "GETS" it but she is not sure she can be everything that he deserves or needs. phew,,,,,so, how did I do with the Reader's Digest version? :) and thank you for your comment. I do look forward to reading you again but I see you are didn't mention the typo.

This says a lot. Trouble is that I'm not sure what you are trying to say. Please elaborate. Whether you chose to or not, it does have great rhyme.

i like the diaphanous nature of this poem ... amorphous feelings expressed quite coherently ...

Superb poetry Robin! Depth of feeling is palpable!

Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 11/9/2005

"TRANSPARENT ILLUSIONS" diffuses wise thinking and shows how to rinse the soul with essences of wisdom.

This composition pays its poetic dues with diamond of poetic beauty
through the lines of "TRANSPARENT ILLUSIONS".

I salute You, Poet!
