I think I have a little different take on this poem then everyone else. I see your second stanza contradicting your other two. You want me to let you go, let you leave but you want me to do this with your taste and fire on my flesh? Hmmmm Me thinks not! lol.
state of confusion
Great responses everyone...I think Marilyn and Corinne really maybe capture the full gist of the poem. Asking to be left alone, to leave and forget what they have left behind them yet not allow the other to forget about them.....sound familiar???
Sorry to try and throw a curve...but I know you all will enjoy it.
Never be a carbon copy of anybody...make your own impressions. - ANON.
