A Fine Musician (You Played Me) Anti- Love Poem

Rating: 5.0

What a maestro!
(What a dimwit!)

What didn't I get about my depreciation?
I'm no genius,
but should I have understood it?
My gradual, but final reduction.
Until, - there- you have it-
a remarkably diminuative me.

Another perfect diminuendo by the Maestro.

Oh! I did not forsee
my demise!
(What a dimwit!)

You give the so-called maestro far too much credit......for we enter any new relationship with a single ally.....HOPE. My friend you are the genius....and LIFE the dimwit!

Its really a good poem. But I see life beyond its frontier. Try to locate the reality and truth. Life is reality and full of hazards.So that gives you pain.

Hi Cailiie - Thanks for your kind remarks on my poems. I also hope that we are not being hoodwinked by some poet fairy. I really enjoyed this poem - God do I know the feeling. It's beauty lies in it's simplicity and conversational style. Well done!

Do I hear the music of a Gigolo's Gig. When ever a woman uses the word Dimwit I know there is a sour note involved.
