#1 (From, ‘what's Really Happening - In 54 Numbers’)

Rating: 5.0

I see your face in reflection,
It is to me a distraction.
The past is gone away,
No matter what I say.
But still I wish for direction
And hope again for affection.
These cloudy moods each day,
Hold me and make me stray.

Burning desires for you I feel
And in my dreams you are still real.
Then I wake again and find,
Our time is long behind.

Your poem has given new meaning to me of the old cliche 'She is a dream.' Your double entendra of reflection in your opening line has me first guessing at her really being there and he seeing her in a mirror and not just in his minds eye. Your poem builds after that great start. I attempted a juvenile version of this theme of lingering rememberances in my poem 'Looking Back.' Your version is much more mature in so many ways.
