A Woman of Worth

by Kathy Mitchell   Feb 3, 2016


To be loved is her greatest wish of all
A heart full of desire to hurt no more
She knows only one truth and that is her own
There is no room for dishonesty alone

To trust again is her future plan
Severely betrayed was her reason for despair
She can be unforgiving for this is her defense
A mechanism so powerful she activates in distress

Wistful reflective serious yet sensuous
Yet always alert
She is a woman
A woman of worth
A woman alone

She can be the most sincerest friend
Respecting you like only a best friend can
A woman of worth emotionally rich
A loving heart is what she gives

Before too long she silenced she
Closing his heart he selfishly let her be
She rose to defend her broken heart
Friends we will, never be
It's over between you and me

Wistful reflective serious yet sensuous
Yet always alert
She is a woman
A woman of worth
A woman alone

    Wistful reflective serious yet sensuous
    Yet always alert
    She is a woman
    A woman of worth
    A woman alone

    I like this repetition you added in the middle and at the end as it reinforces the image/character of this woman. There is a richness in her character and at the same time a sadness which portrays her loneliness/pain.

    Before too long she silenced she
    Closing his heart he selfishly let her be

    ^^For some reason this line here disrupts the flow. Maybe you wanted "she" and "be" to be the ending rhyme but it has no flow. Perhaps removing the word "she" would help. Or maybe like this:

    Before too long she became silent
    He selfishly let her be closing her heart

    Otherwise all in all this read has a way to touch a woman's heart...well penned.

    Started out really dynamic and had a great flow to it, the above killed the whole poem for me anyways, maybe you can do something with it, it just doesn't read right....Good luck, looking forward to reading more

    This is a really good poem, too bad (sadly) it won't win. This site is way to biased. Good luck Though.
