Message to the Lover of the Poet

To be in love with a poet
Is not an easy thing
Try as you might, you’ll never
Live up to his dream

For the poet isn’t content
With love’s status quo
You please and you tease him
But it’s not enough you know

For living there in his mind
Is a picture of the divine
You know that he longs for her
For it's shown in every line

The woman of perfection
Who is not of this world
With raven tresses of hair
And slender arms unfurled

The poet “sees” this woman
And his senses just take leave
For her passion is intense
Her body rivals that of Eve

She is tender and she’s giving
Never asking in return
She waits for him night and day
And it’s for his love she burns

She nurtures his desire
Fulfills his every whim
For she is his possession
Remains faithful just to him

She sees in him embodied
Every single manly trait
Each and every need of his
She’s sure to satiate

Ah…mere mortal woman
Who must compete with this muse
You find that you fall short
And your love’s prone to abuse

For who can dare compare
With a poet’s romantic dream
The siren who sings to him
Who floats on clouds of cream

Poor lover of the poet
Sitting here alone at night
Waiting for him to see you
To turn on you passion’s light

Love him, my sweet, love him
For in the end he’s just a man
That silly muse of his dreams
Can’t caress him, but you can

So win him at this love game
Make the fires really burn
Try to captivate his mind
So that it's for YOU he yearns

Warn that charming seductress
That muse who tries hard to woo
That you have a jealous heart
And you've made him drink your brew

Your body, your soul, your desires
Bathe him in all of these
Not with words but your hands
Make him to do just what you please

For a poet is just a man
Just a simple man is he
Give him all he desires
Then watch his love set you free!

    RICHARD!!! Thank you! Thank you for this comment! Although...I don't know if I'm getting better or if it just that now people know more of who I am and are reading my poetry more. Some of my older stuff is GOOD! Harry just read THE HYPOCHONDRIAC which is the second poem I posted, and he liked it so....but anyway, thanks for the compliment. I cherish your opinion.

    It applies to both genders, of course. Female poetesses need to give their lovers some slack as well...They have their heads in the clouds and it is hard for their loved ones to please them. I meant no offense to the male gender, though....I do believe that in certain ways....they are simpler than females are. :)

    Great work...Enjoyed reading each line..It has great flow, rhythm, and rhyme..Thanks for stopping by..Yes, when I read what I had written the hymn Love Divine came to my mind also..I had forgotton all about that hymn for we don't sing it anymore..Sara

    Thanks, Sara. You are very gracious. :) We don't sing that hymn often anymore either...which is a shame because it is a beautiful one. My favorite hymn? Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee...Lord of glory, Lord of love! :) Hugs!

    Awwww, thanks, Judy. Someone once told me that love is not just a feeling...we concentrate too much on that aspect. It is also a decision...you decide to love and to do what it takes for the long haul. Not saying I've quiet perfected the decision bit...but I understand the commitment involved. Hugs!

    Anna Lise...I just feel sorry for people who are in love with poets in general. We all are a hard lot to please...I was going to write this from a female poetess point of view, but it just lend itself to the male gender better! ;) Ah...we must cut the mere mortals some lack and let them love us!

    Thanks, Lucilla...sometimes we paint poets larger than life...Yes...they are just men and we are just women looking for something that defies the normal and mundane! It isn't easy being a poet...but somebody's got to do it, Right? Thanks for your sweet post.
