       If the poem doesn't describe what my thoughts were when I wrote it then I've lost the ability to write altogether.

    dotsSilhouette of a Mandots

    I知 just a silhouette
    the faint breeze
    cross the back of your neck

    so tell me
    your hairs standing on end
    you致e heard me

    and I知 just a silhouette
    the memory
    of lips running down your arm

    so tell me
    that your eyes are closed
    your hearts been
    beating fast

    But I知 just a shadow
    In the longing dreams
    Holding onto what I wish could be

      Hey John, I read hanuman's comment and agree with that 100%. It's a fine compliment coming from him and I really don't have the time to tell you why your piece resonates, but it does. ......without a doubt! (~_^)

      A delicate, understated, nostalgic poem of lost love. I dunno, sometimes I think we rough males write the sweetest poetry. This was beautiful, a thin stemmed crystal glass of a poem, beautiful but somehow fragile. Well done.

      this makes me miss you
    maybe im just nostaglic but no
    this is really nice
    shows progress from your older stuff
    some very poignt (sp) moments like the kissing
    and the faint breeze on the back of a neck
    its kinda sexy
    i get caught up in the last line
    what iwish could be
    i think maybe the order of it i keep reading what you wish i could be or something like that
    i dont know
    but i like this

      My interpretation of this poem is that you were once involved with someone, but are no longer in this person's life, and yet your presence continues to be sensed by this person as if you were still there.
    I sense a lot of longing and regret in this piece, a lot of memories that haunt both parties involved, even if what they both want is unachievable.
    What I like most about this poem is probably the sensory aspect of it. I alomst wanted to read this with my eyes closed (and then quickly realized I couldn't : ) ), almost like the picture and feelings could only be really seen without the distractions of normal vision. Very interesting in that respect.

      I知 just a silhouette
    the faint breeze
    cross the back of your neck

    I have trouble connecting the silhouette with the breeze.

    Would you consider something a little more descriptive?

    The back of your neck
    feels me as a faint breeze
    no substance, only a silhouette

    or maybe
    I知 just a silhouette
    like the faint breeze
    cross the back of your neck
