Thus is a “Poet”....

....remaining blessed or cursed
with a grand-fine heart
of magnificent fragility,
far too easily lost
to rain or tears....

....remaining love’s stranger
just beyond the horizon
of ‘never-quite-seen’,
as a spectral silhouette
fading in a broken dream....

....remaining hopelessly incredulous
as to why men are folding up
    the sky,
for hanging in corporate halls
to Nature’s inestimable chagrin....

....remaining an unanchored spirit
lost and forever adrift,
(in the depths of words unwritten)
where comets weep, and galaxies dance
over ruined mountains by starlight,
to the music and mystery
of "Deep-Time's" eternal schemes....

....a “Poet” is thus!

A poet
is a failure
whom everyone admires
after he’s dead

beautiful and it is true. Poet has special character and  does have his own special world. a pure, ideal kingdom where everything has a voice.

and your poem is very romantic, very romantic.

enjoyed.

Poets....  so romantic are they...

and this poem captures the true light of a poet...  

Society may see poets as failures... only remembered after death...

but I am sure that within each of us who write... we reach great accomplishments, just by expressing a though like no other person can...

I love it!!

Just revisiting this work again, one of many times. Realized I hadn't posted a comment to tell you how very fine I think it is. It just takes my breath away. I'd say "I especially like..."  but, I love it all!
