      1. Oh, and you are so gallant! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Always a pleasure to have you here! Am I using the word gallant correctly?

         
  1. “pale moon” is a strong enough symbol that strengthens the internal conflict in this surreal poem. Your images created an association for my old poem. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes

    That night of stars
    I was with you as a man
    Gypsy woman

    That night of grasses
    I was with you as a woman
    Wanderer

    That night we were only
    Both of us
    Naked bodies at the fire
    Tomorrow
    We have the lonely roads

     
    1. Aw… thank you my dear B! However, this poem of yours is a killer! I have no words to tell you how much it resonates with me. It’s painful. It’s beautiful. It’s in this world, and it’s out of this world. Thank you for sharing!

       
      1. Ah, my dear author! I really do not know what to say after your emotion-filled words. This lexicon is more typical of my country’s comments and I am very surprised to hear it very pleasantly. Just my verse is the echo of yours resonating with the same soreness and color. Thanks for heart words!

         
      2. My dear B. yes, there is a lot of local color in your poem, but the expression of feelings here transcends that. Again, beautiful poem!

         
  2. Your poem resonates with me. Confession has been much on my mind recently. I am especially thinking about the “silent witness” and how silence works to tangle us in lies and half-truths, or how we sometimes use silence to convince ourselves that everything is okay. Thanks for this thought provoking poem.

    1. Hey Ronald, thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts with me! I actually use silence differently.

       
      1. Oh yes, I understand, it is just that reading your poem set off a chain reaction in my brain and I ended up writing “Bookends by Dylan.” So I owe you thanks for that.
