"And though she's beautiful in photographs, I absolutely love her, when she smiles."
Those are two of the lyrics of the song, but i don't remember the part that reminds me of your poem...
Oh well, This was a cool write for what it was, its sad, but to me, very cliché...The standard girl, or guy, carrying the burden of the world, heart cracked in two, all seems very standard pop song like to me, and I dont' think that's what you were going for.
This was splendid Steven. Even better than you described on the phone and I am deeply flattered that I was on your mind and heart enough to inspire you to write this. YOu are such a good friend and a really talented writer. YOu get me.
The poem is a great symbolism. ying and yang arent just oposites. The dots represent the fact that in every bit of ying there is yang and every bit of ying is yang. in someones live ther happiness and sadness making the whole. The poem speak to me of balancing emotions,priorities etc.
This is a great poem, well written, and I think it's one of the best poems that I have read that was written by you. The flow suits the poem well. It sounds like it's about a friend, or a portrayal of yourself in third person. Keep posting man!
