|A Taste of Time
We touch upon the past
for a melancholy moment,
have a taste of time;
It's more about ego than anything else
and we ring hollow-
Love lives on
so forgiveness may follow.

Artistically told tale of love and loss. Did this person die or just move on in his life? That waterfall line somehow makes me think of death.
A few minor changes-switched around a few prepositions. Happy New Year, every-1. :-)
happy nu-year Starr :-)
We both moved on, however, we both exposed one another to new kinds of lifestyles, which was ultimately and mutually beneficial. Of course, he won't admit it, but I've realized it early on. :-)
This is really, really good, starr. Diction is right-on. Stanza 4 really struck a chord--it's placed perfectly. write on man, write on:)
Thanks, Paul! I hope you have a great 2009, and yes, I will "write on" (at least I HOPE to.) I think I need a break for a few months. My best to ya, buddy! :-)
