Past Poetic, Part II

Yes,  posting two days in a row.  Let’s not get too used to that, eh?

Pain (Knowledge Counts)

    Captivating. A mystery lays between the folds. To me, this poem is thought provoking. Very well penned, with a smooth flow.

    Well done! Nice throwback to ancient times. The complications of romantic relationships have existed since the beginning of time.

    A fascinating tale about a cyclical love affair. Very fantastical. There’s a great novel here waiting to be written?
    Thanks for visiting my blog too.

    definitely my type of poem – intermingling of history, passion, civilization, past lives… maybe if you see mine you’ll understand:

    I certainly love this.
