The rhyming was spot on which made the poem flow elegantly.. Thought somewhat sad, the meaning behind it is powerful & sometimes letting go isn't a easy task. But you put it into a perspective that makes sense. (:
Just as beautiful as the last poem of yours I read and couldn't stop myself from nominating it. This poem did that same thing to me once again.
KCL, you write about different subjects, and hats off to you for your versatility, but my dear when you write love poems and especially the unrequited ones, they just hit me right in the heart.
Obviously, One can't beat you in that, your rhyming is full on time. The language is so simple yet one can deeply felt all the emotions you poured out. I loved each line of every stanza but still my favorite is 'spring clean the cobwebs of me and throw open your doors' and this one 'my heart has a mind of its own'.
KCL, every week you post around 3-4 poems. I just want to request you something, and I am not saying that you should quit your usual style, but could you please write at least one free verse every week.
Actually after reading that line I just felt and imagined how it looked if it had been written in the free verse format. No pressure, only write if you feel comfortable.
Kcl, for me, you create magic whenever you write about love or maybe I am in that age where love attracts me like a magnet.
This poem tells us love any person in the world, truly-madly-deeply, but don't expect the same. That's what you try to portray or convey through this poem. He loved you, and he was a good person yet you never able to develop those feelings towards him.
He still feels the same for you and you want him to move on which is a very good thing.
I genuinely loved the magic you created, and please give a thought about my free verse request. For this poem...
Your heart is telling you and follow your inner instinct. I commend you for your honesty by letting that someone know. And believe me it is not easy. Emotions is something some people like to play with I prefer honesty. All the very best
