Woman of Words

Woman of Words

A Poem by Neville

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.

ha ha Haven't met a woman yet lost for words and I think we men are more into thoughts than being speakers. Putting the two together doesn't necessarily make a love song. A bit of truth and humour in this write Neville.

I stumbled across this on another writers page.. I'm glad I did.. it is very well done.. after my Father died I made a comment and turned to my Mother and asked "what to you think mom.. you knew him better then we did.." and she replied "I was just getting to know him" and they did sing MANY love songs..

Not singing from the same sheet creates incompatibility - and you verse it so well here Nev.......... love songs need harmony to mean anything at all.......... I admire the juxtaposition of He-and-She views of togetherness-life.

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
