    I love short poems. One of my favorites is WC Williams This is Just to Say. This poem is its mirror, except it deals with emotions and not a physical sensation like taste - so much harder, deeper, insightful subject matter, so much harder to get it RIGHT. This poem is a joy despite its quality of longing. (Report)Reply

    Three exclamation points to celebrate the death of the narrator's love interest. You must be a callous fool and complete ignoramus incapable of reading, let alone feelings of compassion.

    Love is what makes one perfect and more so in a romantic relationship. This poem is unique where one of the partners is no more but the sentiments remain. Extremely heart-touching and poignant. Thanks. (Report)Reply

    Touched.
    When the beloved is gone, we compare many things that we did not notice when she was around.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything
    That's how the light gets in.
