That Pearl

pearl between our palms
she smiled, I opened my eyes
just that pearl remained

  6. :-) :-) I know she left and it subtly depicts a heart-break (I hope - at least that is my interpretation) but I cannot help smiling at your lines!

  8. Dreams are so incredibly weird. Sometimes, even when you fail to recall the visuals, the feelings and emotions they aroused within you, they remain. Have experienced that quite a few times myself. Beautifully penned. Great work with the imagery too. :)

  10. I really like how you kept the mysterious feeling of Poe's poem... the pearl is the least worth keeping...
