poet girl

by Richard Trotter

Your wounded eyes, and lemon hair
winter park bench, a purple scarf,
ask me to go anywhere,
i'll be your dreaming other half.

We'll stay and talk til 4am
sealed gently under our sheets,
the icy world we condemn
as we read some Poe and Keats.

Yes, from trembling clouds you came
and wrenched my eyes from the sea
we saved each other from the flame
that dulls our hearts' blank ecstacy.

You know I love to read your poetry (and re-read it) to make me feel better. It's been almost exactly 10 months since I read it the first time and it's just as wonderful again and again. I can't tell you how many times I've read this one. It's my fav ;) much love, Meg p.s. I sent you an email. ttyl

heavily soaked in beautiful imagery. aside myself another man on here who writes love poetry with everything he has. not saying mine is good, but in this case yours is very much so. i felt the fire.
