Loving a Poet(Bittersweet thoughts)

Fall in love with a poet at your own risk.

She’ll woo your mind with serenading

notes and undress your defenses

behind metaphors and rhymes.

She’ll merge emotions with home-made

verses in a nectarous word play, opening

the mansion of your heart.


She’ll take you skinny dipping in alliterations

and mind blowing synonyms.

Merge your dreams with hers in a river of

vivid prismic dreams where fantasies come


She’ll defile your mind, intrigue you with

stimulating conversations and arouse

your inferno like the arms of a piano.


Fall in love with a poet and she’ll make an

honest man out of you in a heart marriage.

Your souls will exchange vows creating an

abyss of commitment.

You’ll be a perfect match like treble and bass

or baked brie and chardonnay.

You’ll connect like Siamese twins, finishing

each other’s sentences, hearts beating

to a synchronized tune.


Make Love to a poet without holding back.

She’ll fill your bed with roses and stream

sweet melodies in your eardrums.

Caress you in a realm of unexplored sexuality

as your bodies glide rhythmically- exploring

unseen boundaries.


Like a masterpiece, she’ll paint beautiful

images of you on canvas and engrave

every piece of you on her skin.


Like a music composer, she’ll dedicate every

love ballad to you because her love for you

is like sweet sensual romantic music.


Like a chef, you’ll be more than comfort food

for the soul.

She’ll serve you a café du lait of emotions on

a food for thought plate.


As a poet, you’ll inspire all of her love poetry

because you’re her definition of love.

She’ll  compose the best lyrics in honor of you

and write you Odes, and sonnets in

celebration of the love that you both share.

She’ll entice and invite you with a private

poetry session.

You’ll be her life poem.


Love a Poet with caution and tread carefully

while you circle your intentions around her


Don’t act in haste with her feelings and

emotions or break her heart because she’ll

give you an archive of memories.

You’ll be an old mix tape that people don’t

listen to anymore.

Your love will turn into a rotting case of

society and your voice will resonate with

the sound of gushing birds.


She’ll bleed and pour her soul on canvas

with an elegy.

She’ll immortalize you and create an


You’ll become the story of her life.

A bestseller passed out to every young woman.

Your name will be echoed at poetry slams.

You’ll be the Spoken word artist’s lesson

at one mic shows.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.

      1. I understand. I get Writer’s block too. But writing more…even random pieces is therapeutic. Hope that you’re able to get through the distraction.

        And re-posting pieces is another way to keep your blog busy. I do that too. 🙂

    1. Ha, ha That’s a blunt Question, Dun.
      Unexplored sexuality is broad. I’d have to write a separate piece on that context.
      But meanwhile you could start on a conquest…find a poet. 🙂
