You know what you do andrea??....you start your poems with simple words, a simplse sentence, then bam!! You bring me to my knees in awe of your final lines....god your incredible with even small pieces!!
I love how the poem looks like a little flame flickering on a candle. Oh so beautiful.
I know that we were talking about candles yesterday and you were saying that you loved Vanilla. Seeing this poem made me think of that.
You're always an inspiration to myself and I know others on here. I completely adore your writes and this is beautiful too. It makes me warm inside thinking about how strong you are and how strong your love is.
There is not one poem that I've read of yours that I have not loved. Each one of them is so full of emotion and just so damn beautiful. There's nothing I can ever say to ever give any of your poems justice, lol. Your words flow so nice and are so majestic. Okay, I need to stop gushing about how much of an amazing writer you are, hahaha.
Anyway, I agree with Liz... I love how the poem looks like a candle with a flame... I'm not sure if you done that on purpose of if that is the shape of the form?
I just realised I haven't commented on your work for quite a while lol, sorry about that :(
But I do read your poems and you never fail to captivate me. I love this piece.
Perhaps I am a little too biased with the vanilla. I love vanilla, almost as much as I love winter and rain :P
Anyway, enough about me lol. I have to say that you write so elegantly. I love how you mix concrete and abstract imagery, and it totally benefits your poems. There is always a sort of nature theme in your writes and I am fond of that.
I can also feel a little bit (or a lot, perhaps) of love here. It may be un/consciously written for/to your husband. Either way, I love that!
You really took this form in your hands and wrote something so amazing. I also hope to see this on the front page.
