Linda

Poet Destroyer what a peculiar name
A protective layer of sorts
Reader beware, stay at a distance see the parts she wishes you to see
I look beyond the shock and awe to the woman beneath the words
The girl named Linda with a heart of gold
I wonder who has hurt her, bruised that tender heart
Creating a mixture
Intensity, Passion, Love
The layers innumerable, a dove in eagle feathers
Capable of great heights
A predator persona with an angel heart
Striving for connection yet holding back some parts
If you look closely you will see a tender hearted girl draped in mystery
A hugger a unicorn lover
She loves to laugh and she longs to be free
Poet Destroyer still Linda to me

    I might have a layer or 2 :-) This name was given by a group out here. I have no anger though; it's all about poetry fun. Richard, many times poets wonder why the name. I thought of changing the name. This is not my image. However, I don't wish to confuse anyone by changing the name~ Can you imagine my ratings going sky high, if I changed my name to something more appealing. I think, my poems would be read double the amount, and not dismissed cuz of the name. You and I both know many will not dare come near a poet with a terrible name. Sometimes I wish I were as normal as many, why must I be that Unicorn hugger. Go into my room, and I’m surrounded by unicorn stuff-ies. This is very nice and I Love the dedication a lot. I am a mixture of all. Mostly I'm the biggest smile on someone’s face. Always. ~ LINDA

    yes, but imagine without the insane name. I'd be on top-ER... LOL, I'm gonna change my new poet name sometime next week.... To plain `A M R I AD-NIL ' <---

    I made one small change, I am so glad you like it. Have a nice evening. Sometimes a controversial name leads to more readers. Either way you seem very popular.

    What a lovely tribute. I loved the dove in eagle wings bit. She will love and cherish this. What more beautiful a gift than a poem.
