I enjoyed this Peter, I find as a poet and a lover who has weathered many loves, some good some bad, that you captured the beauty, the longing, the aching and the rapture of being in love quite powerfully. If you were to ask what changes I would make to this...
I would say none, you have a nice unique style that is fresh and openly honest. Great write.

I liked that this had a touch of humor mixed in with it and unique comparisons and not the same old worn out crap. I disagree with Rocky, the Harvard line is one of the things that make this not another cheesy love poem, but rather makes you say, hey, this guy has his own style, hence, rereading it twice is a good thing-no one rereads twice hearts and flowers poetry that we all heard before a zillion times-I also totally disagree with the second part of Rockie's review-obviously, by the fact that you can't live without her, we assume she is very loving and supportive, the fact that she wears a skirt puts an instant visual in our minds, the fact that you speak of a Harvard lawyer also says something about her knowing what Harvard lawyers could and couldn't do, hence making a statement about her intelligence-her heat is warmth, sex appeal, so one can assume she is sexy-and anyone who lets you rest your head in their lap is a warm, motherly, trusting person, because who falls asleep in the lap of a psycho killer? All these things say loads about who the object of your devotion is-just because a poem doesnt say "Your eyes are like fire, your hair like old wire," doesn't reflect on the poet's view of the person, because it is in the underlying things about a person that we sometimes see the truth of them. That dynamic poem comment-total crap. So is the "Elusiveness or imaginative passionate response from the object of your desire would enliven this poem." And "Got it?" and "Enjoyed the effort." are both reallllllly condescending as well as bullshit. "No two word commentary from me, huh?" is a good example of why sometimes less is more, except when commenting above a really self-important poet who thinks they know it all. "You asked for it. Lucid enough for you I hope... " and if this comment below mine is lucid enough for you, then you are going to end up writing poetry that is shallow crap that people read in those "Poets of America" books they try to sell you for $80. I really liked your poem. Happy New Year-Michelle

Good write - I like the style of the verse. A sad tale well told. Malcolm Watts

"a Harvard lawyer," I think that line would flow better with the one before it if you added the word "that" in front of it. I had to read it twice to connect it to the rest of the poem. Good thought nevertheless.
As a devotional piece that is well versed, this is good, except that we know next to nothing about your lover, your living passionate fire-brand of a person that stole your heart. For example, as a general pattern:
I feel this, you express that,
I give this, you take that.
You fill in the blanks.
Turn this from a static in to a dynamic poem.
Elusiveness or imaginative passionate response from the object of your desire would enliven this poem. Got it?
Enjoyed the effort.
No two word commentary from me, huh?
You asked for it. Lucid enough for you I hope...

Peter, this is so lovely! It exibits the deep desire and lust of romantic love, and the pain one feels if love is not reciprocated. Very well done, and welcome to the Den. I hope you find this a place to spread your creative wings and soar.
