Not For Me - Poem by Dee Daffodil

Sometimes, a conscious effort must be made
To remind myself a poem is not for me
When I read them..they appeal to my heart
And let me feel the way I'd like to be

So...I tell myself to analyze instead
And read the poem for interest sake alone
Still...I can't help but wonder once or twice
If the poet knows my heart just like their own

    Hey Dee... I just remembered. When I first joined PH and started finding amazing poems. I stumbled into your poetry. One of the first poems I wrote this year was 'Poets'. You were definitely one of those poets... my line 'Some seductively set you up and then bite' was a direct result of having read your poem 'The Date' Parts I and II. Bet there are elements of you and inspirations from you in many poems. I am absolutely sure that many have gotten lost in your poems and needed to remind themselves your poems were for someone else.

    I really, really like this poem. Did you write it for me? LOL. Joking aside, I have felt the same way about certain poems. I knew they weren't written for me... but I so which they had been. A beautiful surise is not for just for two lovers alone.. its there for you and me and others too... just like poetry. Zen (Report) Reply

    Perhaps it is part of the allure,
    like any good magic - smoke and mirrors,
    hardly ever show the truth ... in the end ,
    it is the deception that we love.

    Maybe the poet knows your heart... it's what a poet knows. I like this flowing, catchy poem. Great job!
