What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


I stand naked though I am fully dressed,
Her bright searchlight eyes can see right through me,
Each burning need is lit by her, possessed,
Each captured breath scorched by fiery beauty,

Seasoned timbers feel her warmth deep inside,
Flooded foundations spill throughout my heart,
No matter where I roam or ride or hide,
Defences crumbling still I fall apart,

I could crush her with muscled hand or word,
Trample the extent of her commitment,
Be the hawk that harries her uncaged bird,
Her problem, her reaction her treatment,

I would she safely swam uncharted depths,
Than aim to either gloat or hoard regrets.

    One of my poetry teachers, Deborah Keenan, told us, If you really love a poem and have internalized it, you wrote it too. I really like that idea, and I don't think you can apply it any other creative work. You can't say you co-authored the latest novel of, say, Richard Powers (ORFEO) , or the latest symphony of Maestro X, but a poem is such an intimate, personal, universal expression of the soul, that what Deborah says has to be true. And so like some other guys on this page, I too wrote this poem. That is how completely it speaks to me. The reaction of female readers is especially wonderful: they acknowledged you gave them a key insight into what must puzzle them daily - the male psyche. This is altogether a wonderful experience for all of us!

    A deep love for a woman is deep inside us, and when we find that woman nothing on this earth
    will come close to that feeling. A great poem.

    Ah, women, what can we do with them and what can we do without them. A lovely poem.

    It is nice to read how a man looks at the woman he loves and how he is affected by her. Beautifully captured here.

    Very romantic, and an excellent complementary poem for Danny's.

  • Valsa George (10/6/2013 11:29:00 AM)

    This is a stunning romantic piece! ! Who is she who makes 'the seasoned timbers feel warm ' inside, I wonder! Great write! A 10 for this ! Danny will be happy to see this acknowledgement given to 'Her'!
