A Man, Unalike

Loveliness, robust,
A beauty so strong,
Inexhaustible vessel
Of art and of song.

Hope formidable,
A vision sanguine,
Devotion unshakeable,
Tenderness unseen.

Generous lover,
Instinctively warm,
Protector and nurturer
Of future transformed.

A man unalike,
None other could be
My partner, unexpected,
Created for me.

    My first reaction is that whoever the subject of your poem, this “man” is exceptionally lucky to have such beautiful words crafted about your love and adoration. I know this is a ‘creative’ piece and could be about anyone — and that readers have a tendency to project words onto the author — but the sincerity of the words is so clearly articulated that all I can read and hear the ‘narrators’ incredible love and the purity and genuineness of the appreciation for their “man.” In short, it reads like a real and most incredible love, both that he shares and which is seen and revered. A love “unalike” any indeed ….

    • Thank you Arthur, for your thoughtful and reflective feedback that makes me blush and helps me see my words are delivering what I intend. These comments make writing even more poignant and worthwhile for me.

    Such a beautiful and eloquent tribute to I assume your fiancé! Wonderful to have a partner one can feel so cared for and loved in the truest sense.
