Prior to my second marriage: Prior to my second marriage and my conversion, my life was very much flat like this poem describes.  And you have presented that sort of existence with very accurate detail as to how it feels.  That part of my past haunts me, the way this poem will haunt me, but both are reminders of just what I was rescued from.

The coy off-rhyme in the: The coy off-rhyme in the final two lines is like a broken chime that signals an end to this appropriately eerie experience.  I wonder what you would make of the 1888 London serial killings?

You say that: Like we relate on a single level ;) As far as confusion mixed with blindsight goes, this one was lost on me as well.

Well, I am going to give you: Well, I am going to give you an answer that sounds like double talk, but I am not speaking out of both sides of my mouth.  For poems like Haiku and Tanka, which are about the moment itself (and not *moving* from future to past), then the gerund ending is fine.  For most other poems, I like the swiftness of the non-gerund ending.  Even, say, in a simple sentence:  "The dog runs," is more active than "The dog is running."  I think part of it is the gerund seems to require a passive form of the verb "to be," (in the latter case, "is"); whereas the stronger sentence, the dog's being is established by its action "The dog runs" rather than the passive existential verb.  I am not a philosopher of grammar or of existence; just a most minor poet on the internet.

This one makes a lot of: This one makes a lot of sense.  There are some emotions, especiall of desire and/or disappointment, that can only be expressed this way.  To express them in some more prosaic, more "established" way is both to belittle and betray them.
