And I Pull Away

by Rania Moallem   Oct 9, 2011

You awaken me
even when the weather
desires not to drive mad
winds, nor to blow compassion
through my heart.

Suppose I might provoke in
your soul a spring revolution
to swing with your goodwill,
in spite of my winters being so harsh.

So you'll have to forgive me, if I pull away.

    Simply astounding and incredible. I love the provoking imagery that you use in this poem as it brings each stanza to life with the almost real visuals and feelings. Your emotions are pure in yiur message and you speak your heart, which I believe makes a poem, truly, a poem. Of course I can understand your fear of being hurt or losing this peron and that leads you to be wary in giving into something you know will have you captivated and make you feel truly loved.

    I really couldn't decide which stanza I liked best since they both spoke to me in a amazing way. The imagery is brilliant and amazing. Gave me a clear image of how you feel and how he feels. It's clear to see your catious approach to him and even your withdrawal at times. Yet, this person stays and promises you everything and even though you push away at times he still comes back.

    All in all, I am amazed that even though I have been gone for ao long you still have kept your amazing talent of captivating truths and the hardship of going through them. I hope to read more of your amazing works. Great job and keep writing!
