    Dam, its been awhile since i scribbed my last lines
    for i shut poetry away
    i turned my back on her
    never to let her back in my life
    because the man i feel in love with
    his words flowing like the nile
    had me captured in his charm
    he wined and dined me everytime he got a chance
    at his shows he would give me a shot out as his queen to be
    when all the time he told me he loved me
    turned out to be a mere infactuation
    how i know, well, he started stalking me
    see im a full time student and all he does is write poetry do shows and sits at home we live 85 miles from each other
    and somehow he knew my every move
    he knew where i would be before i got there
    he even managed to haunt me in my sleep
    had me scared to leave my room
    cause i didnt know what he would do to me
    he made me hate poetry
    cause his words were a lie
    he crushed my soul from expressing
    the ways i felt inside
    he mad me shut her out
    and i thought that it would be for good
    it was like poetry stalked my life
    and i felt that all male poets were no good
    his CD came out today and
    i had to go buy it im on the inside cover
    with the word "BEAUTY" on the side
    he told beauty was in the eyes of the beholder
    and he knew what he had did
    just when poetry was out of my life
    and then looking back
    i realized i cant but the blame on her
    for one mans mistakes.
    so from this i have learned that
    beautiful is she who can
    heal a million people with her words
    and poetry is me.

    Wow, icandi, I like the way you brought this situation to a positive conclusion, which is good for us, because we get to read you. If this indeed about you, this must have been a frightening experience, and you described this to the reader very well.

    appreciate you sharing your experience and revelations - glad you realize that tools like poetry can be used for good or evil - depending on the person - it's all what we do with it - I'm also glad you learned a lesson about the illusion of evil - it will always hide in a mask of something that appeals to you - often even in the mask of spirituality - but now you know the warning signs of illusion so you can avoid it in the future - just don't let it taint your heart - a True King will earn you through his ACTIONS, never his Words

    Love Eternally
