       A palimpsest is a type of manuscript. When manuscripts were written on vellum, sometimes a layer would be shaved off of an old manuscript, and new one would be written on the same vellum. Sometimes, the old manuscript would shine through.

    As I sit pondering, palimpsest thoughts
    appear between the conscious ones.
    I know that I'm supposed
    to have forgotten you,
    but love is stronger than human will,
    and every cell of my body
    recalls your touch.

      a very good poem, great choice of words, almost all the words in the poem are quite easy to understand, but it's the words palimpsest that catches our eye, and it's that very word which contains almost all the meaning of the poem. keep it up!!! and keep on using the great words that you do!!!

      Palimpsest, can't say I've ever heard of it before. But I'll take your word on it, it sure sounded nice in the poem.
    I love short poems like this, sometimes I think they pack more of a punch.

      With the explenation its great, it gave me pleasent shiver at the thoght of the gentle touch of my own lost loves. but without the lead-in i would have been stumped. Is it perhaps a greater good to lose the palimpsest and reach the world of those who where not english majors.
