like paper

In a dream

I took your hand.

It felt like paper.


You tried to hide it

in your pocket.

But I pursued it.


Then you moved away.




Love lost

Liking your minimal phase very much, Ann. This is wonderful - it could be interpreted as what was written on the hand reveals the true heart. x

Oh I've got writer's block Graham - only minimal stuff at the moment. Sorry!

This feels unfinished to me Ann. As the other comments suggest. You could either add your conjecture about the dream or put it into the dream.
The content didn't grip me enough to wonder what the dream was about.

wow ann, believe or not whilst you were dreaming I wrote a poem called 'paper man' and never finished it. it was all descriptions of skin as paper and the person being without substance...fancy that!

Im not the best on the meanings of poems but is it talking of a brittle love?, In any case I really enjoyed reading it , one of my faves, really interesting use of phrases and I think its shortness makes the words feel stronger :-)
