Distant


   Worlds away you stay
   oceans separate - deep, wide
   desires divide

This is for Real Toads.  Have a look.

  4. Way to handle the whole perspective issue. I had to borrow the train tracks. ;_) This is admirable in its clarity and haunting in its sense of separation.

  5. I agree with Hedgewitch...haunting is the word. And hauntingly beautiful.

  9. Haunting...to swim the depths of desire and not find fulfilling or reach the one who stays away.(Hugs)Indigo

  12. Three lines as deep as the ocean that divides. A longing two by four of a shorty. Hits me square in the chest. Loved it.

  13. Deep longing felt in this, brevity here is powerful, other Mary. :)

  14. An incurable longing (regret?) Very dramatic.

  15. Haunting...yes that is a good description.

    And as to the tone of my last poem,a fun romp through poetic misdirection:-)
