~~~ Who Am I ? ~~~

Updated on May 15, 2013

~ " Who Am I ? " ~



I am the blood that flows through the veins of kings;

I am yet to find one fully worthy of respect.

I bow my heel to no man,and I have no equal.

Fear is a stranger,and I laugh at all-comers,

Making derelict their courage,through sheer terror.


Matchless in strength;

Stealthier than a sidewinder,

Faster than a sparrow-hawk;

Deadlier than the tiger.

Flashing eyes of lightning,

Who lives to dominate,

And destroy those who abominate,

Who's dignity rises higher than a condor.


Breath like a snorting bull,

Lungs of a shire-horse.

Bronzed arms,

As hard as iron;

Thighs as the Sequoia tree.

Calves,like diamonds,

And as sure-footed as a mountain lion.


When I open my mouth

The doors yawn wide,

Like the Gates of Abaddon.

When I whisper your name,

My voice thunders like the Angel Falls.


I see all,but am never seen.

I pass you by,though you'd never know,

Whether I'm ready to reap,

Or preparing to sow.

I expose your confabulation.

At set times in life,

I visit your dreams,

And announce to you events yet to pass.


I am your yesterday,today,and tomorrow.

I lived before you was born,

And shall remain long after you are gone.

South of heaven,

North of hell,

I've witnessed sights,

I'll never tell.


I fascinate,

Like unto the ever-changing sky,

And my love is as constant as sunshine

In the heights of summer.

I tread the depths of the Abyss,

As easily as I walk the Earth.


My being is wrapped in majesty,

My head, crowned with unsurpassed glory.

The Constellations are my garment;

The stars serve as my adornment.

Who am I ?

      Oh God, not you again, lol lol lol. But then again there is a God of poetry among us here with the royal initials of R.Q. takes no B.S. - lol lol lol

      I write about God too a lot not that I necessarily believe in Him or whatever it is but the subject in question always deserves our respect, imagination and wonderment.

      As always my friend you are a modern day wonderment yourself when it comes to having a peerless pedigree in terms of your literary skills.

      Just out cutting the grass in the front yard - that time of year again - and inside for a quick Mango smoothie. Hope all is well on your side of the pond and my furried king and queen are both outside soaking the sun lamp of the Aztecs , lol, sending warm wishes and good energy your way at lake erie time 5:22pm

      To Colin and and his pelted beasts of wonder;

      Lol!! I believe in God,which makes for unfathomable inspiration for poetic work,and am happy that he believes in me.I really enjoy your epigrams...I reckon I've never met anyone who is so prolific a writer,whilst maintaining such a high degree of precision,wonderment and subject matter.Superb.

      Well,Heaven's golden eye is yet to beat down upon quaint old England with any seriousness,but like you,shall be cutting a swathe through the Amazon which is currently my busy-looking back garden.

      All the best,Colin,and your calorie-controlled feline chompers.

      Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      I agree, hands down, with Epi. You've got some awesome work here. If you have the chance, you should check out Isaac White's poems. He has some fantastic work on angels, too. Voted it up awesome!

      Wow, I guess there is nothing you can't do is there? This is beautiful and profound, in a much different way than what I am accustom to. No matter what it is you write, you write with passion and strong emotions and you undoubtedly pull people in. Always fascinated, always in awe... always your biggest fan! :-)

You might just be funnier than I thought... hey, how is that fair, you already have the romantic, sweet, intriguing, talented, passionate,... thing down, I'm not sure you're allowed to hog funny too! Some poor untalented sap is truly suffering now, you know to balance what you possess :-)

      Although the forbidden fruit is traditionally thought to be an apple,there is no evidence that it was that particular one,but we'll just steer clear of whatever would spoil our happiness anyway,as you recline,and I offer you a succulent piece of heaven....but it's getting kind of quiet around here,so hurry now,finish combing your hair with that hedgehog,and let's straddle the centuries......where would you like to go to next,my sweet?

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      R.Q.

      Then dear, I suppose I will have to accept my fate and know that you will need to feed me as you are more aware of appropriate menu choices than I. Next, I think we should go back some 250 million years, before the lands we both call home separated, so that you and I would not be parted by waters.

      Hedgehog.... haha, too cute!

      Hey... I will take it and run with it :-) Either you're bringing it out deep within me, you're inspiring me, you're rubbing off on me or a combination of the above... and maybe it has something to do with the idea that I've only had that thought a dozen times before ;-)

      A hedgehog you say? He would certainly require a special kind of love. But darling, do you think the other children would laugh at him? :-)

      Iron sharpens iron babe.

      Well,if the other children laughed at him,then he could run circles around them with his prickly sense of humour,leaving them in his shade(your subtle humour there, just creased me up inside lol).Hey...so you want our new sharp friend to be a 'he'?Interesting.....

      Yours,

      R.Q.

      Iron sharpens iron... aww, you've got 'em all and I'm having a hard time fitting them in my pocket, but I'm not letting any go... guess I'll have to get bigger pockets :-)

      Isn't that the truth... to make them laugh with you and not at you; that is the only way to be.

      Well, Romeo, I must say... women are generally beautiful by nature, men are generally only beautiful in rareness and usually with effort. I could have a thousand beautiful girls, but a to recreate another beautiful version of you would be not only a gift to us, but to all of mankind :-)

      The first line was a paraphrase from Proverbs 27:17: "Iron sharpeneth iron;so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." KJV.(credit where credit's due).

      You are right;women generally are beautiful by nature,but yours is unique;never met anyone like you before.

      And your compliment at the end,,,well...be careful,because if you carry on like that,I'll never be letting you go.

      Yours,

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      R.Q.

      The credit is that you remember every interesting word you've ever heard or read and you know exactly when to use them! :-) Boy, I think I've got a lot of reading to do if I'm going to keep up with the likes of you... or you can just take me under your wing and teach me everything you know ;-)

      Aw and he melts her heart again, you suppose I can fit you in my pocket? :-) I'd really like to carry you along with me.

      Well, my little Romeo, I can tell you in all honesty that you are like nothing I've ever seen before... not only did He break the mold when he made you, but it shattered in thousands of pieces and He said "That's it... I'm not making another mold!" :-)

      Just callin' 'em how I see 'em, just callin' 'em how I see 'em. :-) Soooo, what you're really saying is that I ought carry on like that? Well, that would at least be beneficial for me ;-)

      Yours,

      Cat

    • Romeos Quill profile image
      Author

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      No;I'm not saying that you ought to carry on like that at all.That would be egotistical on my part,and just wouldn't be right,but to carry on with your beautiful attitude?Now that would be worth hanging around for,and beneficial for both of us :)

      I have a feeling that you could teach me a lot about myself;probably more than I could show you about yourself.However...time will tell.

      ...and the pocket-sized version,I'm afraid,isn't available,although there are other ways of being close.

      Yours,

      R.Q.

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      Romeo, oh Romeo... I'm trying to get you to "never let me go"... see, if I carry on like that... you'll never let me go, you said it yourself 'member? :-) I'm playing with you boy and besides, I don't say anything for your benefit, really... I say what I'm thinking... but I would spend every day whispering sweet nothings in your ear if you'd let me ;-)

      Oh so my attitude would be worth hanging around for too... okay, hold on, let me make a note of that. :-)

      Aw, that's sweet and kind, I have an idea that you are quite self-aware, though I can probably see some beauty that you are unaware of and I would be more than happy to share them with you!

      Hey babe, I'll take whatever version is available... I already adore the version I have :-)

      When I said 'if you carry on like that etc...',it was in relation to your attitude behind the words,not the words themselves,although the major compliment was lovely. :) I didn't want to appear arrogant.

      I'm inspired,now, to publish something,maybe tomorrow,about seeing beauty through the eyes of another;I'll have to wait and see.

      Thanks,as always,for your heart-warming attention,which I sincerely appreciate,making me feel like a beggar at the banquet of your love.

      R.Q.

      I hope you've learned to recognize my goofy nature in some of the things I say... I was being a nut asking you if you remembered, just playing, "calling you out" if you will. I know the dorky voice I have chattering in my head as I type some things, but I don't know how they're read :-) Anyway... I'm taking notes... you think I'm kidding? :-)

      Whatever is going to keep you near me, that's what I'm gonna do!

      Arrogant? Never, you are probably the most unselfish person I've known when it comes to compliments and flattery, sometimes I wonder if you think of yourself at all? That's okay, I think of you plenty enough for both of us ;-)

      I love to hear your inspired... that always equates to more beauty to my ears and tugs of the heart... I think I know you well enough by now to know, you'll have something up... and I'll be counting down the minutes :-)

      I can't help but give you attention, I'm drawn and addicted... it's a healthy addiction though right? Can't beg for something that's being given in abundance :-) ... and I should never make you beg ;-)

      I think I'm up to speed,now,with your sense of humour-it does tickle me :)

      And a healthy addiction?Well,I suppose if you're not neglecting others close to you,and yourself,and you've still got a healthy routine going,then I can't see any harm in it;I really enjoy your company,as well,and to be quite frank,feel comfortable being around you....long may it continue.

      Just claryifying... I should hate to think you'd ever take anything the wrong way. :-)

      No way, I'm not a neglectful person; it's just not in me. I wouldn't neglect anyone close to me, ever. In fact, I'm more apt to spread myself thin. But the thinning usually comes into play when my time is given to the things I enjoy.

      Well, I should certainly hope you feel comfortable, if not, I'm doing something wrong. Amen to that! ;-)

      Cat,

      I've never doubted your attention to others,or your stickability,and you seem to be the kind of person who spends most of her time sacrificing for others;don't think I haven't noticed that,and that you are always there for others.I would be interested in getting to know Cat,the woman as well(not Catwoman-I already know her;seen the movie :)

      You must be tired by now,petal.

      I'm probably no different than anyone else, but yes, I do try give of myself to others, as I'm sure you do as well.

      Yes, I would too be interested in you getting to know me... and that's cute :-)

      Yes, babe... I am tired, I've been bouncing back and forth between here and a hub I was attempting to work on... I've got more than a dozen half-finished hubs, but I get pulled away, distracted or find new inspiration... I think I'm about willing to call it a night though, it was a long day.

      Is it already morning there?

      Any, I hope you have a wonderful day! I will sleep well now and counting down the moments until I hear from you again ;-)
