A Poem by WhiteWillow

A thief by day,
A lover by night.
You launder my words
with a fickle return.

No height, no depth
A plain, flattened plane
feeling are left to burn.

WW, I always return the favor when I am reviewed, and I'm certainly glad I chose this piece to review. I'm not much good at the smaller writes, I am sometimes so hideously verbose. Your talent allows you to shrink-wrap what it would take me 20 lines to say into a more manageable eight lines. And to top it all off: You do it so well. Thank you for sharing with me. take care...dan

Wow! This has the quick intense burn of an emotional explosion. Awesome :)

"where those feelings are left to burn"
the words are laundered, the feelings bleached, the heart dried out until it becomes tinder...and love gets no real resolve.

nicely done.

Ahhh, this is my kind of poem! Love the concept of stealing but then, when lover reappears, you're left in ruins. Your feelings left to burn - this made me think of WWII planes, tumbling down all covered in flames and black blinding smoke.

Thank you, moonskittles, for stopping by and reviewing my words. I like your interpretation!
This seemingly simple piece belies a rich emotional complexity. I love the image of an untrustworthy partner laundering words, taking whatever profit might be wrung from them and leaving little of value in return. That criminal lack of sharing is a spiritual wasteland without form or definition useless to anyone seeking simple love. Your imagery and well placed metaphors are a real treat. Well done!
