Women - Poem by ndou mutshudzi lourens

their curriculum of beauty is suspense
it confuses the pure essence of sense
stuns and thrills man to indulge and languish
it is a catapult that revokes twitches to distinguish

women flowery toss aloft our deed breadth
our desire and lament proselylate length
we suffer the blight and plaguee of fantasy
we are frail monsters late but in ecstasy

but in them dwell the occult trouble of peace
chide, scold, rebuke and admonish us like louse
rein us by fondues and affectionate devotion
circuitously tenet and statue men in version


eternal motion we dance to the music
their incredulity binds us to mimic

    Lovely depiction of the enchantment and tantalizing effect of woman's beauty on man, well articulated and nicely penned in poetic diction with conviction. An insightful poem with good rhyme scheme. Thanks for sharing Ndou. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
