Five Used To Be a Little Number

five weeks.
it's an awful long time, if you ask me.
all the worry and the nerves and the upset
they were all for naught -
and that's a good thing, too -
because if one day is closer to happiness
imagine what five weeks mean.
five weeks mean everything has faded
five weeks mean there is hope
five weeks mean maybe she won't be embarrassed of the overhead light
and five weeks mean
the chance for five more.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Editing stage: 


should try to make things a little clearer, by modifying or taking out the line about ; "and that's a good thing too."
Maybe just say: " I guess that is a good thing."
Otherwise, I think it shows the emotion that you are looking for and gives a good picture of a relationship that seems to be slowly building. Nice feel to it, ~ Gee

There is value to commenting and critique, tell us how you feel about our work.
This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place.

and yet the brittle lively pang..
I loved this...
but then I love imagery
sensations and the diffusion
of these also....

Life and its carnival of souls
its cherise glasses...
