  5. We believe these things, don't we. But there are no guarantees. But yet we choose to believe them. Odd, isn't it?

    Your poem causes me to think.

  8. Oh, this is so... wonderful. Says so much, really. Although I do think the description describes a man better - a great image. I don't know if I would want to be compared to a well worn glove, though. I'll have to think on that. :)

  15. Lovely sentiment, down to
    the haiku core, and terrific
    spin off the magpie romantic
    vibes. Usually, there is a role
    reversal when such words
    are uttered; your clarity and
    brevity are refreshing.
