|Poignant song of loves lost...you speak of him letting you go with tenderness and it's nobility. Yes, it is noble, for such cruelty can ensue at the end of a relationship. The pain is measurebly the same, though. You allow us to feel that pain, Melissa...|

|This is very touching. Very well done.
(It reminds me of a joke that I think is very funny, but I won't share it here and ruin the mood of your page. Email me if you think a little humor might be therapeutic. :)

|Beautiful, sorrowful piece... I love that third stanza
"I try to find this source of distance
that has grown,
that has leapt into the throat
with songs of sorrow."
It works fantastically... you really feel that distance in the throat there... where are you? I miss your writing. :(

|i always say, better to love and have lost it than to not have loved at all ...
escellent poem ....

|This is excellent in every way. From each heart string you pull to the tears that you make run down a face. You took us there and back. You have some outrageously FINE! FINE! images!!! ALWAYS you do. This right here is Dickinsonish to me:
"It leaves me cold
to know that I can only say…
that I have loved and lost
and loved and lost again."
This ending just ripped my heart out. BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL work! I didn't know that something that could hurt so bad could ever be turned into something --BEAUTIFUL---! WOW.

|There is such beauty in these verses that transcends the pain of loving and losing love, warmed only in the sunlight of memory. But you know as well as I, that the sun shall always continue to shine into our hearts and souls. You are correct, you have been away too long, I, too, miss your work.
