You loved me with all
the finality of a funeral
But i want to be back in that parlor
that in between place
Where i was a decision in your head
a decision of your heart
Where finality has no sense
of direction either way
And I can lie silently between your thoughts
because there i can grow
But when the decision is made
I am put to rest

Until that decision is made, we can always hope it will be in our favor... well done!

This I enjoyed. Yes, I think it is sad. but I also feel an element of hope. That's why we hang on!

Carmen - I like this so much.
It sure creates the image very well.

This one is very touching and sad. Not as off the wall as the others. But i enjoyed it.

This came from the heart...about being in limbo with a true love. (or so i thought)

What a way to put that! You've explained it well. I hope the decision comes as you'd like it!

This is really deeper than it appears on the surface. Excellent poem.

 To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.
