       Well, it's not about Jacques Derrida although I intend to write about him eventually.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    In a dream I see your face,
    first in black and white,
    then one color at a time:
    the blue eyes,
    bronze skin,
    pink lips,
    brown hair.
    I awaken
    and see you,
    your glow shaming Technicolor
    and drift away again
    appreciating your glory more
    having seen it deconstructed.

      This is cool....like seeing an artist work in reverse...only painting with the colors of a soul. Short piece but it did it for me....watch it! You'll get a reputation as a romantic (~_^) great idea and delivery...ahhhhhhhhhh.

      This is interesting. I bit odd I must add, but interesting. I like the simplicity of it.
    I like the idea of it a lot actually...how a person gets more and more beautiful when you memorize fall in love with every little thing about them.

      This is lovely, although I may have found it easier to read with a bit of punctuation.

    In a dream
    I see your face[-]
    First in black and white[,]
    Then one color at a time[.]
    The blue eyes[,]
    Bronze skin[,]
    Pink lips[.../-/,]
    I awaken
    And see you[.]

    Here you end this with "you", then begin the next line with "you" again, causing the next line to read:

    You glow[,] shaming Technicolor[,]
    And drift away again
    Appreciating your glory more,
    Having seen it deconstructed

    In this last bit I believe it is the narrator appreciating the glory, but that is not specified. Perhaps if you were to change it to read

    And drift away again.
    I appreciate your glory more,
    Having seen it deconstructed.

    Beautiful image and overall nicely done cuddle!

      Dont worry about what they say about ur pun, it doesn't matter poetry isn't about spelling, punctuations or anything especially trying to correct someone, it's about feelings and I felt ur poem and liked it go on GURL!

      THis is very unlike me, but from "I awaken" I get the feeling that you're saying too much. The last line's good though. I know, it is just the way you like it and unlikely to be revised. Up to you. Nice one.

      first thing: who's Jacques Derrida?? I have no clue. forgive me my ignorance.
    however with your description you've painted a picture in my mind how he might look like. it's very vivid. 'awaken' is an expression I wouldn't use in that context, but I'm not going to argue with you about English grammar cause usually you're the one who's right. anyway this piece is a really good poem. I like it.

      i like the idea, i just don't like the delivery. i guess i'm spoiled. i hate technological references, the technicolor did me in.
