    • Dear Em,

      This is absolutely beautiful. It takes a lot of talent to be able to express such emotion through so little words. I’m looking forward to reading more of your writing.

    It was the people we could be.

    The conversations, nostalgic desire/ what happened to us?

    I fell in love with what could happen- what could be.

    It was the idea that someone like you, could be with someone like me.

    • I honestly love this. In such short words it says a lot more than what you expect. This goes really deep in my opinion.

    • This is such a lovely little poem. It is so sweet in so few words! It also holds a little bit of nostalgia and sadness that I also like and makes me wonder what happened as well. Great work!

  • Natalya,

    Thank you! When I wrote this i was experiencing a loss of a lot of things. I feel as though the best poems are the ones you can read over and over and experience different emotions each time. That’s what I love about poetry, you can interpret them and each person can read it and take it in differently. When I wrote this i was…[Read more]

    Thank you! I feel like short poems can have a huge impact, and also leave you thinking about what the author was trying to say. People can take poems in different ways and I feel that short poems can make you think more and explore the thought process more.

    Thank you! Its really cool how certain areas, taste or smells can take you back to a time. How different sense can bring back different memories/ both painful and happy.

  • Perhaps
    this is not an assumption or a conclusion
    the echoes of what once was- what is- of people we once were- are now- linger in the places we frequented
    this is the reason why we go back- not so much to

    • I love this piece of writing! It is short, but packs a lot of meaning which can at times have the most impact on the readers. Overall, it is very well said and I can relate to how certain places make me feel a certain way.

    • I really like this! It is very true, and also very interesting how people can feel who they once were by a simple place, or maybe even just a smell.

    • This writing really spoke to me and made me think of the times I used to spend in one of my old neighborhoods and I find myself exploring around it every now and again just because of the emotions that linger. It is very interesting how this type of deja vu can become ingrained deep within us and we completely forget the feeling until we stumble upon it again.

    • L-O-V-E it. Totally relates to my situation about going home for the summer and finally be who I really am and not faking it in the currently place where I live just because I know that cultural contrast would effect it that much.

    • Em,

      I really liked this poem. It was short and simple but also carried a longing that I can relate to. I read it as a love poem.. or lost love. I’m not sure, but I also think it could be read a different way which adds to the beauty.
      Thank you!

That’s what I love about poetry, you can interpret them and each person can read it and take it in differently. When I wrote this i was experiencing the loss of a dream and love. At the time i was also really obsessed with using the sky as an analogy. especially stars. Thank you for reading!
