Genna Lyndsey prefers books to people. So when they get to close, she uses obscure quotes to push them at bay. But it doesn't always work...

War Zone, Backing Out of Hell
by Dave Harm

"War Zone" is the prequel to "Damaged Merchandise." It takes place 10 years before the poetry came alive. It is the story of my first two years of sobriety and the demo..

Painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) Flora And Zephyr (1875)


You have the strength
Of a gale
The energy
Of a typhoon
Within yourself
But you don't need
To show off
You never do
But me
You tease
Like a breeze
You twirl my heart
Like a whirlwind
Swirl my soul
Like ice cubes
In your drink
I melt
In your warmth
With the sweet scent
Of woman
Lost in you
A zephyr
With a smile

Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo 10/7/2010
Content-wise this is a great poem. I love the imagery and the metaphors/similes you use.

I'd be tempted to add punctuation to this poem. Also when I read the poem pausing at the end of each line it doesn't seem to flow as well for me. How did you intend this poem to be read?

I'd put the line "within yourself" as the first line of the poem. That makes the flow better and I think that draws the reading in. I'd also combine the lines "but me" & "you tease" into one line to say "you tease me". This makes the poem flow better too. Also to keep with the format of the lines "Mingle" & "With the sweet scent" I'd rearrange the four lines above it so the six lines now say:

I melt
In your drink
In your warmth
With the sweet scent

Of course these are just suggestions. As the author you do as you wish. Hope I've been helpful.

You were one of the first writers to find me on AD, and I've been reading your poetry ever since. Hooked, I am. I can't help but notice a common theme in many of your romantic pieces, such as this one. (As I know your poems come from the heart, unlike mine which are fiction.) The person you admire or desire in your poetry seems always to be out of reach, and you tend to see yourself as unworthy? Seems like it. Hope I do not offend. I just really enjoy reading your poetry. I'd love to see you write a poem, also from the heart, where the object of your affection is the one unworthy:) Because you are talented, and you're a great guy. You have plenty to offer. I love the visuals in this poem. Keep them coming! Love and Hugs,
