Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


He called a name in the middle of night
Replaying the words, the tempting desire
The voice of instinct I cannot rewrite,
I looked in the mirror; my soul fumed a fire.

He woke up evading a clear deceit
My trust splintered like a broken toy, used
Recalling how they brushed cheeks with light heat
And thought ballroom girl was simply amused.

I took a shower, peeling stain’s disgust
Watching the suds fall down on muddy tiles
Then the new moon whispered, “ are you just?”
A bubble lifted the fog pacing a deep smile.

He  brushed my cheek the way I saw them first
And walked out in the light of inner power,
Reclaiming the glow of self- worth, affirmed
Yes I’m woman, but also a warrior.

    Amazing concept created for the contest theme Nette. Deep meaningful write, woman but a warrior, simply awesome is this phrase. loved it a lot. This should place top.

    "The voice of instinct I cannot rewrite", I was astonished at that alone! That speaks volume.Then it goes into her visualizing his dirty deed, which will enrage anyone! But she didn't allow it to chip away at her self worth. She's a warrior for that, and not leaving! Oooohwwe Lady, this is GOOD!

    not only a warrior, but a powerful one at that... as is this poem, your second line in the second stanza, wow, that is so good...

    unable to reply to your soupmail, keep getting error 500 message, not sure if replies went through or not, yes that type of rhyme is fine, if the same sound is there in an obvious fashion then thats fine
