    dotsJust a little bit moredots

    One eye sees the past
    The other sees the future, but
    I'm standing in the present
    Smelling of the forbidden wine
    Lacking the presence
    of mind, that is mine,

    To let things be

    What is before me;
    The best I've ever had
    What may lie ahead;
    This I have wanted

    I think

    I want this but
    I may never know
    how it all comes together, or
    how it will flow
    Where do we go

    With this

    Do I risk losing it all
    For a remote possibilty
    Do I push past feelings, of futility
    Or should it all stay the same

    With you

    There is alot to give and
    it's a major change to
    the way that we live

    and I realize that

    for this pipe dream
    you'd be risking it all
    to go with the moment
    facing the fall

    For a promise....

    I willingly live the cliché; yet
    All that I hope for is
    just a little bit more.

      this is really a fine piece of work. hopefully, i'm not being subjective because i have someone that i am also constantly at a crossroads and this is exactly the way i feel. i really especially like, do i risk losing it all For a remote possibiltiy. i feel like this constantly and i will put this poem on my favorites so i can feel good about relating the sometimes frustrating fear of dillusion?

      I know the feeling. To confesss, or not to confess? Order of the day... Overall assessment?

    Okay, in general your peice uses its stanzas pretty well, putting all of the clichés in the right spot (don't get me wrong, cliché isn't in any way a bad thing) which gives them the right sentiments and strength as one might expect. Your tone is one of dreamy longing, torn between inactive agony and putting what you have right now on the line. In a way, it somewhat resembles the "what-if" train of thought from departure to arrival, always turning back and ending right back where it started: "...I wish..." In terms of diction, it's normal, nothing spectacular or eye-catching, but well-applied and with appreciable simplicty-to be frank, who on this planet actually goes through the agonizing that poets and writers describe in literature? Maybe a night or two, but to me it was more a moment of longing, interrupted by life's beckoning and homework. In that regard, it's heartfelt and genuine-good work there, no angsty teen depression dyeing the entire work some corny crimson red with tears lathering your sleeves or anything of the sort. It is, however, somewhat plain. So if you were trying to make an earth-shaking step in literature, you're a bit off; but if you were trying merely to paint a delicate picture on the tiniest marble block...

    I commend you.
