Somewhere between paradise and diaster
Why You Turn My Head?
You asked what about you turned my head
And I was unable to offer a sufficient reply
For the answer is just you being yourself
But that seems a little vague of an answer
So I will attempt to make it crystal clear
You are my twin soul in so many ways
Their similarity is sometimes unnerving
For none has ever understood me so well
But even in our alikeness there is contrast
For your strengths balance my weaknesses
A perfect fit like a completed jigsaw puzzle
I love the way you see beyond the outer shell
Never allowing me to pull my tough guy routine
In your arms, I am able to rejoice in being a women
Assured that you'll never see it as a sign of weakness
I am able to lose myself in your delicious caresses
As you seek to give me ultimate sexual gratification
With the knowledge that this is more than physical
The answer to your question is the totality of you
For all these things add up to you just being you

I usually have some kind of rhyme scheme but this was sort of a free flow reply. Would love some honest feedback on the style.

the thing about poetry is..

its your own flow...
ya know?
it doesnt require a scheme or theme
and in it you can write about anything
it doesnt have to rhyme all the time
as long as you express your state of mind
so when you write a poetry just stay true
and simply do you!
but if you feel your poem i shall rate
then id have to say..it was GREAT!!!

The style is your creation of mental thoughts
yet it splash and rings out like a statement of confession
and would have more power if it was broken into stanza's
still the poem has it's own depth.....

This poem could have been a VILLANELLE style piece
if it was one line less and a few twist of course in action

over all ........Great write

When I see that you have penned a piece, I know that your word choice will give me a strong sense of what you're feeling, as is exhibited here. Sometimes a poet just wants to express a strong feeling as it is, and adding rhymes may limit that free flowing thought. I enjoyed this piece as is, but why not add a rhyme here and there and see if you, the poetess, feel that the piece expresses the same sentiments just as well.

I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
Impeached twice, trump is more evil than god allows! The Root says Democrats are calling out white supremacist in Congress. Yahoo says ex Navy Seal Adam Newbold who took part in the deadly insurrection, says he's not a traitor/terrorist. Charge him! The Independent says Christopher Stanton committed suicide in his basement after being arrested for taking part in the deadly insurrection.
blah blah blah
