Meet Me in the Silence (1 Viewer)

My favorite poem of the day. I literally felt in my chest those moments that you mentioned. Just before something is said, or when two people can just settle and sink into each others beings without their words getting in the way. That silence can also be very telling about how you feel about the person (comfortable vs awkward).
Excellent.

Thank you so much Annie. Marie

It's feels great when someone gets something or understands what you write. I am very grateful you took the time to leave a comment.

This has the potential to be a fabulous poem... You have some exquisite lines but they are lost in poetry clutter... Edit and let the essence of your message be heard and appreciated... sometimes less is more.... thank you for sharing... ;)

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and critique my poem. I appreciate your encouragement and advice. I've been thinking about how to trim it and tighten the structure(advice from another poster). I'm going to take a break and come back to it with fresh eyes and see what I can do.

OFF TOPIC: I've been reading your poetry thread. Nice stuff. I'm slow to understand poetry...it takes me awhile but I actually see some things in your selections that I really get...I am up to page 9.

Thanks again for the advice.
