Dee Daffodil

A Fickle Mistress - Poem by Dee Daffodil

She lures us in,
As if with her beguiling grin
She captures hearts inclined to sin

That lady fair
Displays a most defiant glare
When we attempt to leave her lair

Makes us drunk with glee
But, she will never set us free
From that which we desire, but can never be

Entices all
With her soul she does call
To those that she may soon enthral

That fickle mistress
Causes hearts and souls distress
Because she fills that need...that humans do possess

    No often does a poet write so accurately of Erato, that muse of poetry, which so affects the soul of every poet around the world, Dee. Your fine poem is beautifully written and expressed, and written in a fairly terse style that is quite reader friendly. You have tied these related verses together quite wonderfully. Carl.

    Hey, Dee this poetry lark gets to me
    I wish I could stop. Must be like a drug
    But, I love writing what I do
    I love finding people, like you
    That makes sense and makes me smile
    I’m glad I found this site
    I was just surfing the internet
    One cold and dark night
    Then I came across this site
    And I must admit it has given me
    A good few laughs
    He he he
