a Valentine poem of regret


The only words he wrote about me were sex words
or worship at the feet of darkness.

For you he wrote academically in love
dissertation words.

A hard on fades.
I want to be a book.

(c) 2009 Nordette Adams

God, but you are good !! In a mere six lines, you manage to put the

AAAAAAAAAAAAAA-MEN !! Bless you!!! <3 'Pea' <3

This is not just an "American Poem." I felt it could speak for all women. We have all felt that was at some point.

Gripping poetry, Nordette...I understand in volumes and would settle for nothing less than a tome.
Regret becomes a reward when you understand the difference.
Wonderful work.

A very American poem. But powerful in its laconic statement.

A topic close to my own heart.

I will admit, too, dear Nordette, with more than a bit of vehemence and rancor, (especially remembering the second chakra, oh my god, it must be some species of penis-saurus idiot males that my daughter found herself entrapped by for several miserable years) that some men have skewered priorities and leave women wounded for interminable seasons.

Thank God that wounds eventually heal and ones focus returns. Your little/big write clearly lays open the soul of vulnerability.
Blessings ...

"A hard on fades.

Instantly classic hilarious--and ever so brilliant--lines.

A short but powerful and expressive poem that is worthy of much more than a single reading and certainly gives the reader pause for reflection. Thank you, Nordette. Love and best wishes,

Nordette - Ironic Valentine poem. Succinct and to the point.

A hard on fades.
I want to be a book.

Mature expression. Lust lasts only a moment; a book is lasting.
Unique! - David

Hi Nordette:

I didn't quite get this poem. Why does he want to be a book?
Okay, I'm beginning to feel dumb for asking.
