    Poem Commentary

    I liked some of the lines in this poem.

    Love Like Salt

    "Too intricate to desipher."

    Music like loud thoughts,
    sometimes louder than the stomping of our feet.
    Kisses on the cheek,
    much warmer by my bedside.
    A smile like the sun,
    too bright for a dark heart.
    Flashlights in the windows ,
    secret messages with the switch.
    Fishnet begginings,
    but we patched up the holes.
    Loud vibrations in my mind,
    like a call I can't answer.
    Whispers around my lips,
    too soft to conprehend.
    Love like salt,
    sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter.

    "Love like salt, sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter." --- this is a sexy line. There is so much of you to yet to come: looking forward...



    Thank you much, Dah. You are wonderful. :)

    this is real good. I mean that although I am confused I never remember salt being bitter. maybe it should have said sometimes sweet sometimes savory? but what do I know I am not the one who smashed the mirror.



    Thank you for the comment.

    Thank you much! It means a lot to know that people are reading my stuff. Ha ha. :)

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
