Surely She Should -Poem

Updated on July 6, 2017
Love poem
Love poem


Surely She Should...

Standing, shaking, solemnly
searching for sweet
serendipitous Serenity.
My soul slashing, scratching, seizing,
standing strong -standing still.
Silence sings something sane,
something safe.
Sages speak softly, slowly
spewing soiled salves.
Songbirds singing sexual serenades
swiftly swoosh.

Speak? Swoon...?

Such satisfactory surges
swamp society as I stare subconsciously,
selectively.
Selectively, selective...
smart selection seeming so small.

Suddenly...
stricken, satisfied... secretly swooning.
Shall she sabotage such scared sacrifice.
Surely she should see my staggering soul?
Surely she should see...
me.

      Thank you Ebower.. I must admit that I was inspired to wrote this after reading the dialogue for the "V for Vendetta" script! Thank you for your support and I'm glad you liked it!

      I love it! I like the over abundance of alliteration. I voted this up and beautiful.

      Thanks Barry... knowing the actual meaning behind poems always make them more powerful. Nonetheless, I'd rather not know the real meaning until after I've read the piece and discerned my own interpretation (and others).

      I liked this. I had to read your blog to understand it but once I read that and then reread this I was stunned. It made sense and was a fun to read.

      R.S.,

      This poem demonstrates a strong acumen for verbal gymnastics. Given the challenge of starting everything with "s", the cohesiveness of the meaning and some of the wordplay work well. The final stanza plays well in this way.

      Parts of it still come off feeling forced, however, though that's no surprise given the constraints. I'm sure I would not do so well myself.

      I can see the fun in toying around with the idea, though.

      Happy writing,

      wayseeker
