The last few words sadden me.

Wow, this is gorgeous. I hope you're still writing (I just looked at your profile and it said this was the last thing you had updated with). I love all the images in this, and the word choice is phenomenal. I'm favoriting this and you! Keep writing! :)

wow. one of those poems that uses a select few words to convey a lot... I like the description as perfection as flawed. my suggestion is to take another look at how the first 3 lines connect to the fourth-it threw me in a way that wasn't what you want; it should be a shock, but also somewhat connected. anyway, I'm doing a long comment because I loved it, both the style and the idea.

beautiful rhythm and imagery. I could go on and on, but I'm just filled with images I can put a name to. wonderful.

this is a very intruiging poem - i love how the hesitant style of verse shows how hesitant you seem to be about recounting these events - the last stanza is worded perfectly and is the a fantastic closing. good job! i loved it

I love this poem. The way you spaced the lines definitley added something, for me. It gave the poem an interesting kind of pace. Great job.

Intriguing. And about something as morbidly simple as a coffee outing and general time and place, maybe a one night stand if I looked at it and wasn't too lazy to analyze the piece so it fit my psycho-thirsted mind. Who am I kidding? Great job.

It's kinda pretentious...the word 'elixir' makes me want to poke my fingers in my eyes whenever I see it. Also, the last stanza doesn't seem to fit. It's not a crappy poem, though. Something to be said for that.

Wow this was really good. Everyone has already said it but the last two lines are really wonderful. Keep writing.

Hey there...I *love* this poem. The tone, the imagery, the rhythm...

That's fantastic...I love the skipped line, that glaring word anchored there all alone... Also, I just go for lines like that, you know? Something like perfection.

And the last two lines...wow. Wow. *WOW*

Glad you're back, with poetry like this!

Lovely. A love poem that isn't corny. Great use of language, very poetic, almost beautiful. Especially liked the last stanza. Nice work.
