"Your poetry kills me,"
She suddenly said
(And I'll be damned
If she didn't look dead!)

"You're a heathen beast
With a godless heart,
As gloriously stupid
As you are smart."

(I smiled, by the way,
At her frantic roar;
For, you see, I've heard
It all before...)

"Why can't you write
About hope and love?
And acknowledge the glory
Of heaven above?"

"I am guilty," I said,
"Of the charges you level
For I see no difference
'Tween God and the Devil."

"I write what I know
Of the human condition,
And all that I see is
A war of attrition."

We could argue forever
And never agree--

So she writes what she hopes for,
I write what I see

I liked this....it flowed very well.
One things for sure....to truly appreciate the art, you must acknowledge the vast differences in style and formation. I believe most poets write what they feel or have strong feelings about. (Unless it's a challenge....and we've seen a couple of those around....hee hee)
