This poem is somewhat mysterious. It was about three years ago that I wrote this, yet it takes many different shapes and forms as I grow and experience more relationships. It can have so many personal meanings to the reader.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

ocean waves
wash my soul
cleanse me of your smile

and the memory of
ten fingers
entwined forever
in a hopeless wish

    i loved it
  • lormie
    I can feel the sadness and the hopelessness of the author. I see two lovers who can not be together holding hands walking along a shore. Looking at each other's eyes. and wanting nothing more, but the memories to both stay and go away.

  • katie
    I love this poem. It reminds me of my first unconditional love. Only on his part it wasn't conditional. And I just want to forget it. And when it says "ten fingers intwined in a hopeless wish," it so made me cry

    This is a short poem yet it means something and I like that. I mean I see all these poems using these old words like shall or shant or thee or something (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I like to see poetry like this- very simple yet meaningful. very beautiful.

  • yeraldine
    This poem is very simple yet it means a lot. All poetry should be simple but it should have a big understanding that no one can understand. All small things mean big things in the hearts. rateing: 10
  • anne
    It's surprisingly short but captures the heart. The second stanza leaves me hanging and encourages more memories to rush back to its reader.

    It's what poetry should be. Only a few words that mean more than a thousand. Simple enough to remind this stranger of something she's missing.

  • grettel
    this is so understandable,that is easy to understand,think about it because what it is telling you can not be shown
  • Ferhat
    this sounds as if a quarrell leaving a vision of a "leaving" hand on the poet's mind. I have always thought that after an embrace of a farewell your hands leave each other more than your bodies. I am really impressed. thanks for that share!

    I find that the shortest poems have the most depth and this poem ment a lot to me. It was quite romantic. It sets imaginations alive (it did to mine).
