Was I Mistaken

by Love Fallacy   Oct 9, 2013

Was I mistaken, when
I stared into your limpid
green eyes? Such a faultless image
projected vivid creations
throughout the mind.

Was I mistaken, when
I took your petite hand
and twirled you under the moon?
The corners of your blushing lips
pointed like a compass towards
the stars.

Was I mistaken, when
my heavy eyes softly depressed
against the warmth of your skin?
I tremble as I vocalize that
cliche phrase that makes
us whole.

Was I mistaken, when
the church bells thumped parallel
to my heart? A bond infinitely
sealed by laws and regulations
of the soul.

Was I mistaken, when
you shared these very moments
with another? Accepted his warmth
when I was bitter cold and now
realizing it's to late to turn back.

    It is refreshing to see a romantic poem with such detail (limpid
    green eyes) giving me the impression that the love interest is genuinely personal . The poem has a great free flow and delivers well

    I do like this poem. It brought out your feelings into a question. It's like you are asking a question that you already know the answer to in the back of your head. it kept my attention. Good job! keep it up!

    This is a very good poem. I loved the imagery I think that was the strongest part of it. The wording was lovely too. I liked how you used the title in the first line of every stanza I believe it works well to heighten the poem. The beauty of the other character is great. You describe her so well. Nothing can compare to the simple things when you are in love though. I love the dream-like feeling this portrays. You seem to go through a period of time with each stanza and the last one has a twist. You seem to be in love then the ending hits you hard. You want this person so badly but you can't have her. Anyway great write. You seem to be getting better with each write. 5/5

    I love Questioning poems, they always make me wonder if the actual person meant for understand that you are talking to her, they leave us with lots of answers where question is not imposed.....This is a great piece, keep the spirit.
