Such an Enigma
What's really being said?
Often understanding others is such an enigma, it seems as if the message doesn't get through, no matter how it is delivered. But then on other occasions, perhaps the intended message only appears to have not got through, when in fact it did, but it was interpreted in a different context. Men and women really don't think the same way and that can lead to all manner of ways for all parties, to become confused about what it is that they really want to say and how to best say it.
Such an enigma, is a very deep poem by New Zealand poet, Pearldiver. This piece illustrates how much differently some people think on the same subject, if she was considered from the guy's perspective and conversely, how she considers the guy should see love from her perspective.
Of course, this may seem a little 'extreme' but it is meant to be thought provoking, as too many guys and girls, both often ignore the number one rule of understanding: "Always make sure that you understand the other person's perspective, before you expect them, to 'understand' and 'react' positively to your own!" Plus, where flowers are involved, it often pays to also consider the flower's perspective, of it's role in the equation! Enjoy.
'Such an Enigma'
She deftly tore the petals, from a scented rose
And scattered them purposefully, across the room
Hoping for a propitious reaction, to her invitation
Anticipation’s outcome, for what should be, an act of love
He, pondered deeply, the thought of what it must really mean
To the rose…
Her naked beauty ravaged, violated and torn; now lying detached
So lost, to all possibility of, any future rose moment, or any bee!
This once perfect, mauve rose - such an enigma…
What else dies so silently, to enable love’s life, to remain so mysterious?

Such an Enigma!!! What if it genuinely is crap? What if it's simply just too thought provoking for some dummy? What if the poet has actually breached poetic license?

From a successful Writer's perspective, perhaps it's Too Good for this Site and that is the point! So many excellent poets have left this site during the last year or so, most agreeing that their efforts and skills are better suited elsewhere. A sad fact and such an enigma, as to why!
