This poem - it's the first time I've read it and I liked it a lot. One,
because its very simply written and 2, because it has a whole lot of
meaning. It may not seem like there's a whole lot of meaning at first
glance. You see in your mind this wild, beautiful young girl and everyone
loved her and now she's gone. Because a hundred men are hunting her and
fifty men are heart broken because of her, but she went after her dreams
somewhere far off, not caring about anyone. Those guys are heart broken
because they couldn't have her. You always want a hundred times more the
things you can't get. It hurts a hundred times more just because you know
you can't get that person or thing. And what more? You want that person a
million times more, you want that thing a million times more - just because
you know you can't have it. This girl - she's like a dreamgirl to these men
and now she's gone. Everyone's just thinking about where she went and why
she left. Has anyone thought of what would happen if she ever came back? I
doubt things wouldn't be the same. I doubt she'd be the same laughing
lover. Sure she might still have the soft hair and the little cute chin,
but maybe not that spirit or that determination. Maybe i'm looking way too
deep in it, but I guess what i'm really trying to say is that once someone
or something is gone - well - depends on how long they're gone and under
what circumstances they're gone - but once they're gone, things have
changed, it probably won't be like before. When she came back, all the men
run after her, things go back to normal but you know somethings off and
nothing can be exactly the same. Maybe she shouldn't have left in the first
place. Maybe they should be happy for her that she went after her dreams
and find women that actually care about them. Oh, never mind. i ruined this
poem's charm. Sorry. But these are just some ideas. But really, I know that
if i ever ran off to make my dreams come true, i wouldn't want anyone
forgetting about me - especailly not the hundred men or whatever. That
would suck :)
