Revelation

Well, when I realized I loved you

I wasn't the first one

And also a long way from being the last

It was fair enough, no-one should have you for their own

(Those who tried to cage you, lost you before dawn)

 

But the girls nowadays, they don't understand

They'll hold on to almost anyone

Even if he belittles their virtue

All they ask for is cocktails and sunshine

 

You said it was easy to kneel for all women

Not just for the ones that turn everyone's head

And honestly, you added, wasn't it a shame

That you can't put up their souls in a frame?

 

My future wasn't laid out like a sea shell's

When I discovered that I too had a pearl

If I believed in the power of song & despair

It was only after you showed me

Author's Notes:

The fact that many so-called teachers never taught you anything is outweighed by very special people who you never met in person but who teach you a lot.
Thank you Leonard Cohen for the inspiration.

Heike -  Good morning (it is here, anyway) This is  an interesting work.  You are so right; there a lot of people who profess to know something but are only mimics, not masters.  Then there are those that have a calling and because they are masters they naturally teach and inspire others.  May your life filled with the latter.

 Heike,

Very good poem. well writen.

"My future wasn't laid out like a sea shell's"

was my favorite line.

"Those who tried to cage you, lost you before dawn" was my second.

One of those poems you have to read again and again....

I get the impression this is another tribute; this time, to someone who persuaded you that you had a gift you didn't realise you had. For poetry perhaps? That is certainly the "pearl" you have revealed to your CP fans. Or does the pearl symbolic of an inner beauty that only a friend or a lover can discover and bring out? Your poems certainly leave the reader pondering, and savouring the lovely lines and images. Well done.

I get the feeling there is a particular story behind you generlis-zed lines..I freely admit, I cannot make the connection to the poem concerning a free-spirited lover of women's souls aand your about, concerning the ineffectiveness of teachers,unless your poem is about a particular teacher who caaptivates the ladoes.In other words, Nice poem. I like it...Mystery Guy

That's right...it's not about what is taught but more so what is learned... this is a great one here...thanks for sharing.

This is why you became a poet. Whatever the inspiration, you penned a beauty. jp

But the girls nowadays, they don't understand


They'll hold on to almost anyone


Even if he belittles their virtue


All they ask for is cocktails and sunshine

Bang on, genius. Bang on.
Thankyou for being one of the "very special people who you never met in person but who teach you a lot."
Welcome to my favourite poets, of all times. Hah, actually, I just remembered, I had to go to for an interview for my Eng. Course in college, and they asked me who my favourite poet was. I quietly squeezed in your name, and they didnt know whether they had to know you or not. Hehe. You're amazing.

Leonard Cohen a brilliant songwriter and poet.

 

Inspired work Heiki.

  So true! So sadly true of so many. such shallowness all around its enough to make us wonder sometimes if anyone actually "feels" the way we poets do?

 

And honestly, you added, wasn't it a shame


That you can't put up their souls in a frame?


 

deep and powerful ................this really moves me.

 

My future wasn't laid out like a sea shell's


When I discovered that I too had a pearl


If I believed in the power of song & despair


It was only after you showed me



If only everyone could find their 'pearl.'
We all need someone to open us up to our depths.

Very nice, Heike.  Good point.  We do learn a lot from people we haven't met.  ML
