The Power of Seduction.

If you are planning the perfect Valentine’s Day surprise, or just planning anything romantic, then perhaps you should seriously consider using the seductive power of poetry to convey the way you feel, in a way that speaks to that person like nobody else could.

Really great romantic poetry can set a special mood with words that create a sensually visual mental picture when read aloud. Historically poetry has been written to express feelings and to convey the emotional perspective to the reader. Modern poetry is no different in that regard, but does tend to approach the subject of love far more openly than the poetry of past poets who, though writing to push the boundaries of the day, were in many respects, considerably more conservative by modern standards.

There are many great modern poets to be found on the net and when it comes to poets who have truly mastered the art of poetic seduction; then you must also check out the works of Pablo Neruda, who specialized in poetry for the heart.

The poem below is called:‘If She Was Mine’ a love poem written by the New Zealand poet Pearldiver. 'If She Was Mine' is described as a perfect, seductive poem of hope for all seasons and valentine wannabe lovers. It is intentionally written to be vastly different than the style of grand masters like Neruda, yet still openly illustrates how to speak seductively and passionately in verse, to that special someone. This poem and the two examples of expression below, should help you to create your perfect, message. So have the confidence to write from the heart in your own unique way and in that way which best illustrates how much you care for that special person.

Besides, if you get your words and timing right, you can use the combined power of your heart and your own sensual words as your competitive advantage; to blitz any pesky competitors! That's right, with a few well chosen, genuine words you become very unique, showing that you are special in a winning way. Hey, all’s fair in love and war. Enjoy.

If She Was Mine. (A love poem by Pearldiver).

♥ ♥ ♥

If she was a song

She would be that ever present melody

That comes to you unexpectedly in surging waves

Of notes that pick up and carry worried minds away

Gracefully to far off places beyond stressful days

If she were an expression

She would appear within the veneer of confident smiles

She would be that sound silently heard from deep within

An explosive gentle moment of greatest shared pleasure

Wow, defies the chorus of sighs drawn as she enters any room

In magical style, no singular expression can honor such perfection

If she was a bird

She would soar effortlessly above us on love’s thermals

She would be the beauty of a shimmering humming bird

With its delicate, tiny hover and sweet nectar desires

She would be the patience and stealth of white herons

The purpose and flight of the falcon’s return to my arms

And as if a lark, in sparkles, she would herald the light of our love

If she was mine

I would know that dreams do come true

And with her, know my love can last, beyond all time

If she was mine, if she was, my Valentine

♥ ♥ ♥

Hello ML.. first cab off the rank - to...? Thank you for your kind words... I am in a transition, as in changing my writing style and finding out what it is to be a dragon that writes poetry, in the year of the dragon... :)

If She Was Mine.. is my Valentine's card to the beauty of all women... it's about how I feel inside and want to yell out. I hope that this poem helps others who want to use words to describe the beauty in this world. I'm lucky and glad that these words found some of that beauty.. take care..

Beautiful poem and images, a good source of inspiration for anyone struggling to find the right words. It says a lot about me, that until I looked closer I thought of chocolate when I saw the first image here,sorry. I really like the last two images, so much nicer than a standard Valentine card.

Hi Brenda, good to see you, thanks for reading this Valentine's poem and yes it is about that fit isn't it? I really don't think most men have a clue and honestly, I have always found that and used to really use the advantages that it created! Life is not long enough! I love this style of writing, it does represent a change of style for me, but I am sure that I till have a great deal to learn.

I hope all is well for you Brenda, I will read more of your works too... Happy Vals Day.. you take care.

You are a master of words and emotions! No matter your style, you are able to convey with great conciseness your exact feelings. You are admirable and an inspiration.

I love your photos -- the effects are captivating. :)

Happy Valentine's Day PD!! ?

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Beth, wow, thank you for such kind words - you are very masterly as well at flattery! Yes I write my exact feelings and I know if my poems are are any good (by my standard) by whether I can keep my eyes 'non-misted' or not.. That is my benchmark lol... I don't know how inspirational to others that could be Beth.. but it is how I write and I'm sure that's not in a handbook.

You have an awesome day and Happy Valentine's to you Beth... good hearts need days like this... and a party!

What a beautiful tribute to all woman of our world, our space, our abode. They are a dynamic creature co existing with the male species and without them our world is empty. As much as man has tried to live without them in their lives they fail miserably:-)

How many great men have risen to power with the woman of their dreams beside them and in many cases without them they failed miserably.

I know this, that if man can truly love, feel and understand the desires of a woman. They have a connection for life. Men/woman need each other to continue the species and showing their TRUE LOVE for one another both physically and mentally in all ways will help bond them for life.

I truly enjoyed Al Paciano in Scent of a Woman, he nailed it with the tango. We need more tango in our lives:-) Yes indeed I love the scent of a woman it completes me. Bravo my poetic friend, this is a masterpiece. Voted all the way UP.

Hi Ken, thanks for calling by to read and comment on this poetry.. Yes, you are completely right and the tango is far more than the tango is.

I'm glad that you liked this work, as it is representative of a change in my preferred writing style. How can you not appreciate the power of eyelashes, or the curve of the neck that cries out to be gently brushed by a warm breath? I shouldn't go on...

I hope your day was a great one my friend and your book sales are booming.. Thanks again for all your support.. take care man.

Hi Maita, cheers and Happy Valentines to PDH.. So you like this style of poetry do you Maita? Hahaha it is your fault, it was you who introduced me to PN and I thought - "Yes, that's how I feel!" So.. thank you as I could have found the right pulse otherwise.

It really was you who inspired me.. so I hope I have many more poems to write, as there are only a few in my life that truly introduced me to something so life changing. I am reminded of that with each poem that I feel can inspire others. Cheers for that Maita... you take care.

Rob, thanks and I think it is innate in your nature to write poetry. Some are born and blessed to be a poet and that is you. It is a gift and you have a caring soul!! Pablo Neruda concentrated on the human heart while you love and care for the human heart plus all the breathing life. Your poetry are beautiful, captivating and full of love! TC always. Maita

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi again Maita, you are being too kind, I am totally untrained in the art of writing and my time here has been used to bounce off others who are really kind in their compliments, like you! Bowngggg! I just write what my heart tells me to and that's all.. Thanks for being a real honey Maita.. I hope all is well for you.. take care huh?

Oh, this is one of those very beautiful poems. I loved it! I hope you have had a marvelous Valentine's Day, Pearldiver. A romantic poet should be spoiled rotten on the Day for Lovers, because he enables hundreds to say in words what they can only say with their hearts. Take care!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Martie, thank you so much for your lovely words and positive comments. I hope that this poem did fit your day Martie and will do so for more time to come.. My day was not one of being spoiled rotten, but was one of writing a poetry portfolio from the heart.. it has so much to say Wartie :) It won't shut up and to be honest, I don't want it to.. I love life and its challenges.

So maybe by next Vals Day, I will have completed my album. Glad you liked this one.. all the best Martie and take care..

This is awesome, not only the poem, but the other content as well. I need to revise some of my poetry Hubs to add to them. Not change the poems just add some relevant content. Voted up and beautiful, have a great day.

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi dmop, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this piece. I'm glad that you liked it and found my format worthwhile for poetry. All my works have relevant content build around the poem. I feel it is really important to ensure that the content could stand on its own without the poem, if it had to. Cheers for your positive endorsement.. you take care.

Oh so lovely poem and great insight as to poetry being seductive no doubt about that fact. I see this was written around Valentine's Day and I didn't join Hub Pages until April, so I missed this, but I am glad I found it now. Funny, on Valentine's Day in lieu of something else, I had written my two grown children poems describing my love for them on the day of their birth, combined with the meanings of their names, and they both loved them. I have one daughter and one son. They are both gifted and talented. My son is a great poet himself. I thought they may be embarassed by doing such, but was pleasantly surprised they loved it. Voted Up In His Love, Faith Reaper

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Faith Reaper, I'm glad that you found my poetry as well.. more so, when you leave such positive feedback and compliments.. Really pleased that you enjoyed this piece... it wasn't initially written for Valentine's Day... but February 14th was looming, so I chose to make it a dedication gift to the fine women and friends I have made on HP... Receiving a Valentine's poem that has been purposely written for you, is a very romantic gift that conveys far more than the words within the poem.. the same goes for the style of birthday present that you gave.. very cool and I'm sure your children really appreciated that love... Thank you for taking the time to read my work... you take care.. PD

Really enjoyed it, voting up and awesome!

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi LaThing, soooo you are looking for a poem that says, 'I Love You' and doesn't avoid those words?? Umm.. 'If she was mine' wasn't what I had in mind when I mentioned mirrors. You may need to read 'We Don't Talk' or 'Art of the Diver - Hope' and 'This True Test of Self' - those are 3 recent pieces that are... how shall I say..... emotionally charged! Hahaha.

Oh another is 'We melt as only true lovers can' .... My way with words is contained within those pages mentioned... you will see what I meant. Glad you liked this one though... after reading the selection of these poems, you will know that..... you know.. I am not related to Bubbles the Chimp.... hahaha.. thanks for your review.. take care.. PD
