The Poetry Man

The Poetry Man

A Poem by Dara
"

in memory of a special poet whose spirit lingers continuing to inspire

"

You wrote of angst and ecstasy

where lovers meet

in fantasy.

 

Your sensual words enticed me

with sultry prose

seducing me.


On wings of love you carried me

where souls unite

eternally.

 

Should the whole world crumble
yet will I stand

for my heart clings to

the poetry man.

The Poetry Man, past and present is a keeper, perhaps not necessarily in presence but in the invisible touch left pon heart and mind. Surely.

Pretty and/or valuable gifts bought from shops and stores are all very well -. BUT when a man gazes into your eyes and whispers words that come from his heart, then, he's given you more than a gift, he's given you everything.

(Either that or he's a right villain.. only the recipient can know which!)

Oh yes, we can fall in love with words even if we never know the man or woman who writes them. Sounds like this poet made quite an impact on you. I liked your tribute to him. Lydi**
