About the Poem

This poem is somewhat mysterious. It was about three years ago that I wrote this, yet it takes many different shapes and forms as I grow and experience more relationships. It can have so many personal meanings to the reader.

You

ocean waves
wash my soul
cleanse me of your smile

and the memory of
ten fingers
entwined forever
in a hopeless wish

i loved it
lormie
I can feel the sadness and the hopelessness of the author. I see two lovers who can not be together holding hands walking along a shore. Looking at each other's eyes. and wanting nothing more, but the memories to both stay and go away.

this poem touched me because my boyfriend that i love with all my heart and sout and who is my best friend for life got put to prison for a stupid reason and i pray and wish every single nite for him to get out and as da poem said its a hopeless wish
katie
I love this poem. It reminds me of my first unconditional love. Only on his part it wasn't conditional. And I just want to forget it. And when it says "ten fingers intwined in a hopeless wish," it so made me cry

This is a short poem yet it means something and I like that. I mean I see all these poems using these old words like shall or shant or thee or something (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I like to see poetry like this- very simple yet meaningful. very beautiful.

yeraldine
This poem is very simple yet it means a lot. All poetry should be simple but it should have a big understanding that no one can understand. All small things mean big things in the hearts. rateing: 10

It's surprisingly short but captures the heart. The second stanza leaves me hanging and encourages more memories to rush back to its reader.

grettel
this is so understandable,that is easy to understand,think about it because what it is telling you can not be shown
Ferhat
this sounds as if a quarrell leaving a vision of a "leaving" hand on the poet's mind. I have always thought that after an embrace of a farewell your hands leave each other more than your bodies. I am really impressed. thanks for that share!
