You truly have a creative mind, as your words and images are so common yet you manage to wrap them in an intriguing coat. I am reminded of two lovers in a world far far away when I read this piece of yours. Perhaps an art couple, for you were legends back then. The ending is a sad one, packed with doubt and perhaps a bit of hope. Just like your previous poem, this poem is able to evoke multiple emotions. Congrats on the well-deserved win!

A great poem. Poems like these just aren't meant to be deciphered. 5/5
Woow... I love every word in this poem... so beautifully written.. you have created amazing imagery with great choice of words. I could imagine what you wrote and understood the meaning. Well done! And congratulations on the win! :)
The first line indicates that the entire poem is about the author digging up their memories and their past. Such a structure (a single opening line and uneven stanzas) and with the right punctuation gives the poem a regimented feel. Arguably, the heart of the poem is neither the first line nor the second, but in my opinion, the first two lines in this poem are already enough to make a great poem. The idea that is presented to the reader in the phrase "giving birth to fantasies and our own religion" is mutually connected with the closing line, "were we not"as it could be seen as a direct answer. Overall, another mesmerizing and powerful poem, keep it up!
