The Love Of That Poet

The Love Of That Poet

A Poem by Dhara_Ditzy Kat
"

Sigh...This is for you

"

Lifeless I lay once, still

as a wooden, empty chute

The hollow shaft of me

filled with wind, sluggish

somnolent and mute

The notches in me ran deep

cutting my core, draining

me to the absolute

Till he picked me up from

the dusty ledge of this

silence, irresolute

Caressing me by his breath

his tender, cherry lips

and his fingertips so astute

Filling me with his music

He played me like a flute

The analogy of the flute here is extraordinary...the empty chute, the hollow shaft and the notches running deep. "Filled with wind, sluggish, somnolent and mute, till he picked you up...and played you, filling you with music". It exudes passion. Bravo!

The most romantic piece a came across today. Brilliant. There's melancholy from the start but things turn out differently in the end as love conquers all. Loooovvved it!

STUNNING! This is an exquisite artful extended metaphor that describes "being played like a flute" (an old time expression given new life). Your word choices are truly brilliant, as far as describing both a tortured love situation & also human-as-flute from the "dusty ledge" . . . too many well-crafted phrases to quote them all . . . "wooden empty chute" . . . and many more. Love this very original writing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I've visited this poem at least four or more times now and each and every time i hear the music ...the breath into air flowing with a slow and soft yet higher pitched resonance. A wonderful pairing of words, woman, love, music and passion! Oh and since I could not comment on the Cokehead and Crone poem..E.E. Cummings?? Is that you??...lol. I loved that effort as well. Are you not taking praises on that one as of yet? Unique as hell!!

When a mere touch creates music, that is love. Exceptionally written poetry.

A beautiful instrument will always produce delight and harmony when played by a master... This is a wonderful celebration of love's transforming effect... A lovely composition... dead words brought to life like the wood that becomes the instrument then becomes the source of sensual and spiritual beauty.
