Lover and A Fighter

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

A frabjous day

On a cooing sway

Swish swashing

This way and that

Forlorn sits a silent writer

A lover and fighter

How can it be

Such empathy

Towards a wilting flower

No matter what the animal be

A person or a tower

A lovely sky in the air

No one can go higher

A deathly day

A selfish way

A day long song

In the morning long

 

Cailing on a day well spent

Leaving on a wayward went

Alliteration I do not speak

But a language of a heart so meek

It feels the heart I once had

I gave to you I went to mad

But in sadness and in sorrow

I'd have it back by the morrow

To give to one other

My only true lover

The only one I have not found

Just a game of fox and hound

But there is one other with whom I'll be

In the future and I'll see

Who my heart truly belongs to

 

But until day meets fate

I'll still wait

A silent writer

Lover and fighter

 

He fights for love

Oh morning dove

By the lakeside he doth wait

Until the day they shall meet

Write forever

This love endeavor

A crowded soul

A periwinkle

A flower at his hand

Slowly beating

Never meeting his holy loving gland

 

A heart I mean

Her way it leans

Always being rejected

Until one day came

A girl with game

And won his heart rejected

For morning meet

His love defeat

And show him the light

Percussion bright

On that spring night

The rain falling free

 

So as he sits

Amongst the mist

And writes about his day

A memory in mind doth be

About her selfish loving way

Under a tree

Full of glee

This lover and fighter

He sits there by day

He sleeps there by night

He eats the fruit delight

 

The pond is deep

The myth asleep

That love has never existed

He lays to rest

His lovers death

To slowly be redeemed

Lover and a fighter

A silent lonely writer

Writing for the day

Sitting alone by the lake

Frabjous and awake

On the slowly cooing sway

 

The wind is light

On a summer night

A precise date is lame

But days are long

Nights belong

Short as the pencil doth be

I really like this poem. There are quite a few original and interesting expressions and metaphors. When I first came across the word "doth" in your poem I thought that it might be the sign of a duffer in action, but as I continued reading it...

I really like this poem. There are quite a few original and interesting expressions and metaphors. When I first came across the word "doth" in your poem I thought that it might be the sign of a duffer in action, but as I continued reading it became obvious that you were using the archaic word as a literary device--nicely done. I think though that this poem needs to be "turned on the potter's wheel" a few more times. This poem's lines flow one into another seamlessly, but occasionally a line pops up that needs some work, for instance: "But there is one other with whom I'll be." It's too clumsy, esp. when compared to the rhythmic mellifluousness of the rest of your work.

i enjoyed the story the poem told. the word order of the lines changes to often. sometimes its the modern way sometimes the olde way, probably done to get the rhyme in. but as josh said some lines are a little clumsy. im not sure about the line -...

I wrote this poem over the course of 3 days. I don't know why it took me so long. But let me tell you it was a very confusing three days. Thank you for your input. I'm glad you could find the message in it.
