For my dear Dr.Strangelove ^-^

If somebody is watching over you, eventually you know it by instinct, this is human nature.

written yesterday in a depressed mood, i personally dont agree with the first line of the last stanza but it was required for the whole.



O Passerby…


Don’t you feel

The undraped windows

Of that old house

Are staring at you…


I can barely breathe

When I sense your absence

And the truth that you are just a passerby

Who grabbed me by the heart strings..


And then I wish we had never met

Now I will never be again what I used to be

Something inside of me has gone entirely missing

And I don’t remember what the world was before you..

This says more than the words read. Such meaning behind the ides of an abandonned house and how you feel like this empty disgarded memory. Beautiful :)

My Overactive Imagination

yes, my requests are closed, but i couldnt resist this! wow! i can't decide which stanza ifs my favourite between the second and the third, but i think, it is the third. its just so powerful. the final line, though, i think is the best line in the entire poem. its expressing loss and guilt and regret and emptiness all at once... a completly beautiful overload of emotion! sorry for the babble!! i liked it :Dxxx

Another great poem! All throughout this poem I felt a sense of longing, of yearning. Like staring down at something, waiting for something and it's far out of reach, or like life, it just goes on and on, and this person just watches it go by or yearns for that. I don't know if these are my feelings, or you meant this poem to seem like that! :)
This poem felt lonely... :( I really loved the pictures at the beginning and end. It gave me something to think about. Like, another perspective. At the top it's lonliness, and that's what I felt and what I imagined the tone as. But at the bottom, the picture is imaginative, and fantasy like. Like daydreaming. So then I thought about the poem being like that and read it over again. This time, it felt a bit less sad. It felt..more dreamy. Watching daydreams and thoughts just pass by as one could contemplate out the window of an old house. Very lovely poem! I really loved it! The pictures are amazing and really give diffrent perspectives of thinking on it. :D

Thank you soooo much dear... basically, the poem is about depression (thats not a nice word and unpoetic too, slam), that i had gone through the day before yesterday.. it is a confusion, what to do, what to do type... like 'if a want to take a thing, i take it' type of bratty attitude and then realizing that this individual is not a 'thing', he is even grander, more magnificent than one's dreams, like it is a blasphemy to treat him like any other gentleman around... so, yeah i agree with each word you said..

Hi Ruby, I'm wondering, are you referring to yourself as the undraped house that stares unbashfully out at the love it once had? The feeling of being unable to breathe in the absence of a loved one, yes really understandable. And even more painful is spotting that person, who was once so close, now become a passerby, a stranger. I can say that I'm no stranger to the sentiments you've expressed! Thanks for sharing again!

Heya Jimmie, what you said just reminded me the story/classic "The Yellow Face" in sherlock holmes series. This man passes by a house and sees a yellow face in the window of an empty house... hahah if you havent read it, you must, i am not gonna tell who was the yellow face...

it simply means, that if someone is watching you from that window, it means the house is no longer empty and yet you cant see you who is seeing you... it is a scientific fact, if someone is looking at you, your mind registers the fact in the subconscious and slowly it starts impacting your conscious mind too. (watching discovery channel too much hahah) when somebody is thinking about you, you connect to them instantly but subconsciously, because all humanity is connected already with an unseen thread of unity (this is practical QP, and brain waves XD)... so yeah, thats it :)

This was very well written and well thought-out I can tell, but unfortunately, this was not me type of poems that I am interested in. IT DOES NOT MEAN IT WAS BAD, but it means that it was not for me. Other people would appreciate it more than I do. Anyway, could you take a peek at some of my work? I'd love an opinion on some of it. Thanks :)
