James Bond the Poet

Double oh Sevens The gamble of dangerous men Poets who carry guns To shoot out the hearts Of unsuspecting ladies A single word, a bullet That can wound or kill the love Of any careless romance Yet they fall at the feet Of mystery and sweet words And later in the evening Tears flow from ladies of sadness Left alone among the sheets of love The Spy, he could save the world Yet save not one single love He grew old and alone His last thought among the living I die a lover, and never felt love

Dear Arthur, Always loved James Bond and he did break quite a few hearts. How sad the last three lines are. If we never know love, what joy can there be in our hearts. Awesome write, my friend. Love and blessings for a happy Easter weekend, Carolyn

A favorite, Arthur...WOW! Of course, you have caught the very essence of a poet...A dangerous dangerous man who has license to kill with bullet words. I'm very very impressed! :) Great job...the ending....awesome!

You know many people truly that are in the art of creative writing and poetry can relate to this. Ah, the loned poet pours out his heart upon the page.. I too may live my life through without ever truly experiencing love.. I got so much out of your words here. Truly, you are a remarkable writer and I am glad I finally read some of your poetry tonight. Lucinda aka Cindy Lu
