The Ballad Of Poet Destroyer

"The Ballad of The Poet Destroyer"

Destroyer, and creator of words
Flying high on the wings of a bird
Drowning every inch, by foes and friends
Where has she gone?

When push came to shove, 
She continued standing tall after every fall
Falling fearlessly like the falling star tapping the lips
Topaz, a star in the eyes of envy the enemy
A dreamlike, miracle mirage, fresh like mints
No reason in remembering yesterday's sad song
Slightly she moves in with the new barren breeze,
A maze in disguise, no way out
A feeling so good, you hate
The naming of names, that won't escape you 
Your eyes of lust, imitate PD's sweetest touch, 
Destruction, with pleasure
A new day, killed by the morning after pill
Everyone gone, shadows remain
Where, has she gone? 

A feeling so good, you hate
Your unmatched precision, wobbles your stability
She'll give you a taste of rays, despite your low self-esteem 
Happiness turns to sadness, making every jaw drop
Where has she gone?

She's not the painting of Mona Lisa, 
However, it does not stop you from spending your cash-
-To see a picture painted with a frown,
Look what you've done!

Never to return, what was, what is!
You say you love her, then you run
A dry barrel, an empty gun, 
Never will the enemy be number one, 
Nothing but a shadow, a rug for PD,
Like a dream, her imagery is haunting
Love her or leave her, her pen name remains
Poet O' Poet where are you?

Advocate of smiles, enjoy her copy paste kiss
Trace her silhouette found in the midnight mist
Blindfolded, indulge by the wind
Breaking, the Texas Hold EM' Hand
Her freedom, her land
Gone insane, she laughs, 
Untouched she remains, she lives
Inside of me

By; PD

I read three times...I guess slower than the rest but, I needed to slow bake it for all the juices to soak in! First read, got the story! Second read, sauté and baked in the imagery. Third read, caught the metaphors and analogies and feel I see all or most of you. Great from the part to the whole! Keep doing these if they call your name!

This one is quite deep. A testament to a woman's power, her vulnerability and ability to break hearts if she so chooses. Very nice! xoxo ~ Chris

This poem puts the reader in orbit, and at high speed. The imagery is astonishing, the product of a refreshingly creative mind. I think it can be said of PD—with certitude—the lady can write! Thank you!

Look in wonder as she rises again from the depths, sword in hand, hacking at the tentacles of depravation. She comes in glory, stronger than ever before, radiating the aura of things to come....PD LIVES ON. (in my favs.) // paul

Hi Linda. As promised, I'm now back from a long weekend and reading your poems. It seems I have started with a fine choice! Wonderful imagery. Yes, your inner spirit is alive and well! However I will not accept your copied and pasted kisses - only 'keystroked X's' pressed with TLC ;-))) (that line of yours I really liked!). Bye for now. Will read more in coming days. Marco...
