    NaykidApe Bomb the Ban

    You're cool and warm

    Hot and cold

    Open and mysterious

    Bright and unfathomable

    You make me feel like I can do anything

    You make me feel helpless

    I want to sweep you off your feet

    I want to run and hide

    Your smile is an invitation and a warning

    I know everything about you

    I wonder what your name is.

    This poem is cliche' and original

    Romantic and a little creepy (now that I think about it).

    I loved it. :) Maybe it would seem somewhat little cliche to an experience poet, but to someone a bit more naive, (like myself :) ) the ending was a total surprise. You did a great job of setting that up.

    It does leave the reader feeling a bit... unsettled. Which is totally awesome. :D

    Well it relies heavily on contrasts, some more original than others (hot & cold, warm & cool)
    But -invitation & a warning-, -know everything about you - yet not your name- Liked those a lot! Reckless, desperate, and yeah romantic...

    Wow! Reckless, desperate, twisted,....

    I feel like I've captured the essence of most of my relationships in this one.

    ;) Seriously, thanx guys.
