Amourosis

My love,
last night I dreamt
that I was
blind,
and You
described
each tiny thing
with vibrance
and such clarity
that when I woke
I wished
I could not see.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
Last few words: 
Thanks Ian and Ann for their title suggestions, in the end I decided to make up a word lol an amalgamation of amour (love) and amaurosis (vision loss), but does it work?!!! :)
Editing stage:

Curious thought and yet your seeing has made you
able to appreciate what was described,
the "you" must be a poet too?

It could be called 'Sight' or 'Blind sight,'

A nice little poem, with love Ann.

Lovely Ann, curiouser and curiouser said Alice ;) yep this was another funny one, there wasn't really a dream and the 'you' isn't a poet, there was only this poem, which came in it's entirety. I like your title suggestions too and can see that it does require a 'proper' title, thank you Ann, much love Beki xxx

the title suggest clandestine affair, is it that the other is not aware of the writers love or is it an affair hidden from the world.
Well all and all the dream is beautiful, truly enjoyed it.
Well done!

Wow.
How simple in construction, and profound in meaning. True poetry, and I find myself unable to find anything wrong with this piece.
Most excellent. Bookmarked.

what a truly lovely write

simple, clean structure,
and graceful lines with a delicacy that
belies the impact of the words

i've got no problem with made-up words if they
suit ...and to me, the title suits

2 very minor suggestions ...use or lose

perhaps "that" in line 3 is not needed?
have you considered "awoke' instead of "woke"?
not a thing wrong with woke ...awoke just sounds
more poetic to my ear

again, very lovely

cheers
p

Thank you p :) sorry it's taken so long to acknowledge and reply to your comment. I can see where you're coming from with the suggestions and do like the idea of awoke, not sure about losing the that in the 3rd line, it doesn't read quite right to me without that extra syllable :) if I do go with awoke I might have to lose the that in that line lol (again a syllable thing, I guess I've got used to the way this one sounds, rhythm and timing etc) :)

Happy the title wors for you and you found some loveliness here :) thank you so much for stopping here p, suggestions most welcome anytime :) much love b xxxx

We see
and then we see
in vision new

we write prose
and then we write prose anew

How amazing I jump from a latest
post and link it back here and
read this from something that
I find immediate attraction too

your style of poetry of course
I dont want to change any of your
poem Y our way you write
with words gives me visions
of what you describe

Your title is original and apt
to be happily imbued not
with someones eye colour
and leaving it there
but in how they transcribe
feeling and description in a personal
and intimate script

how delightful to wake and feel
that desire
to want someones gift of sight
then just ones own

Thank You

Ahhhh I love your comments, they are poetry :) thank YOU :) much love xxxx

This was beautifully neat as it is,
and a special poem in Neopoets
giving the same feeling as a Haiku.

Loved it on re reading today.

Oh LOOK here comes the sun
through the heavy mist of morning.

Goodmorning all and specially you,
Nordic cloud.

Dear Ann, glad you enjoyed a reread, was nice to revisit this one myself :) hope that sun shone bright for you today, good evening and lots of love xxx
