Woman of Words

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Woman of Words

 

He fell in love with a

Woman of words

 

She

 

Could write them down

But dare not say them

 

She

 

Could whisper soft

But never meant a word

 

He

 

Was a man of many letters

 

She

 

Was a woman of many words

 

Despite their overriding passion

Not one of them could sing a love song

Dear Neville,

She
Could whisper soft
But never meant a word

Clearly not singing from the same page, sexually compatible, but mentally divorced springs to mind

Could it ever work, yes on a superficial level, NEVER on the deepest level. One loves deeply, the other doesn't. Mind you there's probably many who can amble along like that. You pick your own poison, I did that once.

You could write a book about these lines you know. There's a lot of meat not showing on the bones of this poem. It's also a sad read.

Chris

So true in many instances. Love oft makes one 'tongue tied!" They say of course that 'action speaks louder than words'

Oh how poignantly you sing a song of futility! Sometimes the prettiest words float around in such an unsatisfying way. You are so good at showing a tiny corner of the picture & then the reader's experiences are piqued, exploding into a whole host of possibilities where this has actually happened (((NUGS))) Fondly, Margie

dear Neville, again Your words find their way into a depth of me, I found my self deep within some of Your lines here, Love should never be just written words, or spoken ones, Love should be actions, have the courage to get closer, express our feelings loud, take the chance to say it with no shyness or fear, only when them both do that the song of their love will begin to spread high, it will not work if they hide behind their words without saying them to each others.

A Harmonica is difficult as a duet with each person’s persuasion like a persimmon that is not quite ripe, but could be sweet if left to the sun and moon’s delight. truly, Pat

congratulations my friend... and many thank you's for taking a peek at ya self.... Neville :)
Neville, I was getting ready to log off when I saw your poem and wanted to comment.

You express what I call the "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" relationship. Women don't always feel as men do and vice versa. You've expressed this fact nicely in your poem, yet I don't know if this is from the heart or a dramatization.

This particular poem exemplifies your love vs. her feelings. What Christine has replied is exactly the truth, at least as I see it too.

You appear to be the type of man who falls deeply, but by exposing your heart, you suffer greatly when a relationship doesn't work out completely.

A great poem that forces the reader to contemplate relationships. Thanks for posting. :-)

it makes me think of the old 'Jack Spratt' child poem I knew growing up but tangled up in much deeper emotions than sharing a dinner plate. And between the two instead of clearing off the plate together to food remains there, cold. Just the imagery that came to me after reading this. Thanks for sharing these aspects of yourself.

Always beware of too many words not supported by enough action. It happens when we’re “just not that into them.” (There’s a bestseller on it) Words are just words and letters just letters. We as writers can and do sometimes get carried away with them but have dithered when the time came for realising them, taking the next step. Once or twice in life, I’ve been guilty of this too. Maybe a crazy writer’s quirk. I bow my head and accept the brickbats.

This poem is a masterpiece from you, N. kudos! 🤗
