    Ahhh, the words of Neftali: Quiero hacer contigo
    lo que la primavera hace con los cerezos.

    Twilight's crossing For MR
    From twilight crossing
    touch from naked fingers
    comes sparks of conjured dreams

    Visions, lovers embrace
    fallen to the ebb of time
    caught in minds eye

    Memory of bold beauty
    passion rains upon us
    holding wet desire

    Bleeding shores glisten
    shared moments mounting
    contain the thunder within

    In our nature
    the storm abounds
    ignited by the elements

    Beautifully vivid, it captures the beauty of the world, all the things you talk about, the crystal moon which is the true image of beauty itself. you brought the poem to life it brings pictures of a beautiful place were anything can happen. Nice Work. (Report) Reply

    Wow, that was pretty good, but i hear there is this poem called 'Neil is awsome', it was life changing and insperational. Read it and vote it a 10! (Report) Reply

    He says that love is sustained only if love is returned back. Reflecting on it, I think its true. Beautiful, well - written and thought provoking. Brings many images to my mind. I could clearly see the chemistry between two frustrated hearts that wanted to speak something to the other. After reading the poem, I wanted the woman to speak back to him. A wonderfully expressive poem. (Report) Reply

    'If'is a powerful word. If she loses her love but still holds on to it, he will do the same. If she leaves without looking back, he will do the same. It seems to be such a delicate and respectful love; he respects her feelings even though they may not be what he wants, yet, he would give himself fully if she asked him to in the end..unconditional love...understanding that love can't always work even if it's meant to be. I feel with this situation right now and am glad to come back to this poem when I need it the most. (Report) Reply

    That was very well written. I like the metaphors that he used. and how he explained that we will love if she loved (Report) Reply

    Real love is not something that just exists, floating in a vacuum. It needs to be sustained. (Report) Reply

    i like this one cuz it shows that he loves her 4 wat she is a not wat she looks like (Report) Reply

    I like that he loves her because he loves her, not because he needs her.

    He's making it clear that he doesn't need her; that he could live without her, but if she loves him, he'll love her.

    It's like the quote from Maurice by E.M. Forster, 'I was yours once till death if you cared to keep me.'
