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

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!)

    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! (Report)Reply

    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. (Report)Reply

    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. (Report)Reply

    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! (Report)Reply

    and the diminution in its own way
    still reeks diminuendo blurs at the finale, and that is the metamorphosis coming across, , , , , , , wonderfu thought by the imagery of time in space, well penned,10+, thanks for sharing
