The View

        THE VIEW 
(A sad point of view)

I can't believe he has to be a poet
To tell you how he feels
Maybe he does not know it
Words written on paper don't really heal
Do not tell her you are sorry
When your apology is not real

To be or not to be?
That is the question you should really ask.

The man should never call himself a poet
Unless he has lived, learn, lost, and gained it all back

The man who writes good poetry
In my eyes is a man of art
He can paint you anything without a paintbrush
This is the man I call no poet, with a colorful heart

Using all his manly skills
He is way ahead of the ordinary man
Leaving the imagination, filling the soul with chills
He is like the woman who leaves you all aroused

(A sad point of view.)

While the woman swims in her own drown.
She finds herself helpless to suffering worlds.
Without a man she thinks she is lost, nowhere to be found.

The secret of the female is
When she is heart broken
She thinks life is over 
Little at the time she knows
Once a woman feels
She gets right back up to be a lady
When the time calls
The lady is stronger than ever

One thing I learned about a lady 
You better respect her
Don't destroy her better days
She will crumble you up for sure
If the lady says she is a poet 
Than a poet in her

I will never insult a lady
She will crush you where it hurts 
A real lady knows how to control her man
A lady knows how to keep her emotional words real

But the woman needs to grow 
Stop trying to be something she's not
In time she will know
To give it her best shot
I will praise myself and say
"Woman always come and go."
A poet, she can act and play
With fake words that have no flow
This is my demo to all poetry freaks
Keep it real!!

    Food for thought. It is unlikely that without your warm welcome comment on my ballad that I would have discovered you quickly for I am a poet who writes almost exclusively with forms and rhyme. I wanted to answer your comment but know not how. (I am the father in that poem.) Have a good week. -Larry

    Excellent write here Linda. I agree with you 100%. Poetry should always be real . . . and not fake. :O) Well done. Keep up with the great work. Keep on penning. Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful and creative talents with us. We all truly appreciate it. *S* Cynthia

    Writing is powerful, when it is what the heart wants to say, kudos on the different perspectives. :-P A lady knows how to keep her emotional words real, yup you said it my friend, dig it. :)

    I loved this specially this stanza: The man who writes good poetry. In my eyes is a man of art. He can paint you anything without a paintbrush. This is the man I call no poet, with a colorful heart. I always held that A poetess (or poet) paints with words. I hope it's ok I read your oldest poems too? I feel I learn a lot reading your poems and reviews.

    Studying you and your craft is very challenge, but it well worth doing my research on you. You are an awesome poet even if you know it or not which I am sure you are. Your name speaks for itself. I hope one day your turn your words from pages to books.

    Linda Another creative and unique write. You know how to always capture the readers interest and enjoyment. Every line you compose is full of feeling that pulls the reader into the poem allowing them to live it with you. Nice job my friend Hugs

    Hi Linda, thank you for the reply, you sound a little more cheerful I'm pleased to see. That's what i do just concentrate on a few good friends otherwise it gets to much to handle. Yes at vacation, will do you good. Take care my Sweet Dark Friend, Richard

    WOW! Linda I love this. I have been called a Lady many a time. A poet I don't think I'm a very good one, but I just like to write. Once someone ask If I knew the difference between a Woman and a Lady. This is what i told them - A woman walks through a door, but a Lady always makes an entrance. I 'm glad to see you. did you read your Doup Mail. Lucilla

    Paternally punishing with an intent to uplift PD. - A rich description of moral graduation; I like how you split the genders, ingenius! " Unless he has lived,learned,lost,and gained it all back..." this is the recipe my Sphinx, bravo! Your are The Lady - J.A.B. %

    you certainly create dialogue, p.d, i've read alot of your poems after being here a couple of years, you are a awesome poet and so sensitive too, once you lower your guard. then again i like it when you are in an aggressive mood also. So i guess i just love what you do.

    I truly think that hardly anybody here realizes they can see our old stuff. They took our poems away very briefly and when we complained they added them back on. But one thing they failed to do. They did not make it easy to view them "by form" Before I was able to find ANY form I ever wrote by just clicking on Form but now I can only do it for the last 200 forms. That really bums me out. Well, I need to get my contest up. Nice talking. Andrea
