Woman phenomenon


I thought I knew her only now i know
she is deeper than i know.
She is a Phenomenal Woman

I concluded i would buy her so i worked hard
got rich but she choosed a pauper.
She is a Phenomenal Woman
I wished I had struck friendship with her but
would she have consented?
She is opinionated
very opinionated.

She is a Phenomenal Woman
Some day, Some how, somewhere
I would find her and then
she will be the shallow and me deep.
and then again, She is a Phenomenal woman

    This poem shows a sense of humor, even through its expressions of love and loss. I like the way you have logically developed your train of thought. The repetition of the line, She is a Phenomenal Woman, is a great poetic technique for impressing on the reader your admiration of the lady, yet you are not entirely accepting of her choices. Very good poem! (And keep working on your mastery of English-it takes time!) (Report) Reply

    From a male perspective, this poem is 'For-the-boys-only' ESPECIALLY when
    referring to women as 'purchases'! I personally like the concept. However, I could see where many women will find this poem 'chauvinistic' in tone. But...I understand the desire to have 'this' woman! she has her own mind. As long as you are aware of that and respect her for that, you may find success with her! Whatever you do, keep her from watching 'Desperate Housewives' and/or 'Oprah'. (Report) Reply

    Your poem is well written. While I am glad the woman chose the pauper, because I think that love can not be purchased as you spoke of. My beliefs and feelings differ from yours, i see. But you write well and i think that you are talented. It takes a strong man to write well. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
