I just wrote this in the last five minutes. Don't know why I felt the burning urge to write this one. I admire poets who can let their souls sing about their life - thus a healing begins. Then I wondered about the others..those that keep the silence of their soul:




I値l not let you know the inside of me
you値l get none of that in my poetry
the curses, the slaps, pulling of hair
you値l get not a word of that in there

I値l tell you a tale of a maiden of old
a knight, a knave, a king so bold
I値l weave a story so fantastic and rare
you値l never know if I was there

My soul is locked in silent supplication
not open for any reader痴 edification
go somewhere else for a confessional song
you won稚 read mine here in this poet痴 throng

Well now Ms. De, I think it was Mr. Whitman, who said: There is no trick or cunning, no art or recipe, by which you can have in your writing what you do not possess in yourself.

And so, I see through you.

Good GAWD woman! Five minutes?? One day, if I'm very lucky...I'll have the talent you possess in just your little finger. Well done! I always enjoy reading your work.

Ah, pen (may I call you so?)

I have a wily mind you see,
not all my poems are about me!
I've written many of other things,
frogs, fair maidens and bumblebee stings!
If all that I say in my poetry
is not of anyone else but me
then this one thing you will surely see
I must be a split personality!

Well said, Pen! No matter how you try to mask it..a piece of yourself is embedded between the lines. I feel very strongly about that. (Which scares me to death when I think about Steven King..LOL)

Seriously, you can't deny you give a glimpse of yourself in your writing..can you Poet?

If I can call you De, surely you can call me Pen. Five minutes, huh? Gosh, you know you got to give me some lessons. Now who said, "when the student is ready, the teacher appears?" Hey De, Pen is ready.

And Sally speaking of Mr. King, what about this Dream Evil guy? He writes some pretty scary stuff. And I don't think he likes women.

Split personalities are a wonderful thing (speaking from experience) (me too!)Think about it this way, it's twice the fun!

As to the five minutes,
I venture a guess,that you have been blessed,
with gift so fine and rare,
That you think in rhyme,
most anytime,
anyplace and anywhere!

Read between the lines
As I do Ms deVine
Your soul is clearly there
And none in the world compare!

I like this one!

Thank you for you comments.......hmmmm. Ok, maybe it's a little bit of me in that poem. But now I'm scared, remember I wrote the poem about that huge zit - is that me? And what about my erotic poetry on the Adult Forum - that's definitely NOT me!

Pen, you may either e-mail me or catch me on ICQ and I'll teach you all I know - should take about 3 minutes!

special way. You are very talented.

oh my deVine, you're turning into quite a sinner
having a newcomer for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
...naughty, naughty

i guess poetry can serve a lovely escape from the present's drudgery for some...i can go either way, but not the way femme's comment read in the adult forum

I like this - wish I had more imagination to write poetry about knights and maidens and days of old.  But, I don't.  Just wish I did.
