Alexander was just that and I loved him from the first day I knew him. But poets are really unconventional people, I must say—quite eccentric! My Alex freaking is! I enjoy his romantic poems a lot I admit. In fact, sometimes hearing him read the words to my ears at night and in his deep husky voice, quite turns me on in a couple of minutes! But I hate the fact that he is so unconventionally passive with every other things not connected with inspiration and creativity and he even tries to win me over into reading lots of meaningless collection of essays and poems.
He interjects a line from an essay into discussion we have about us, about life and our future. Alex can spend about 5 hours—5 being the very least, writing a single page of a poem! A poem that is not breakfast! I felt and actually was lonelier than the loneliest single one earth at that time!

And even though they have their rather peculair eccentricities, of course. Some of the deepest, truest feelings, then, of are felt and best expressed by romantic poets. There are two types of romantic poets and writers in my understanding. There are lover men that are poets and there are poets that are lover men. In another sense, the public writes love poems when it falls in love.
But the poet falls in love when he writes love poems. The one engages in love poems only as the usual lovers-turned-poets outbursts of young folks in love and the other as an art that extends into his love life.
The same was true of my practice and love life, too. I was a writer of love poems and psychological stories before I started a relationship.

They can tell em where to go and how far to stick it without using a single foul word. Roses are pretty sub-standard and typical.
Instead, you will get hand written love letters and sticky notes with one line panty-wetters. Yes, I said panty-wetters. You know what it is. You will never not know the deeper meaning of something. There is nothing at all that a poet cannot analyze the hell out of. Poets tend to be minimalists.
Poets make curiously good alcoholic beverages. Because poets drink a lot of alcoholic beverages. There will always be something poetic going on. And they will know about it. You will know what a true apology sounds like. Poets can apologize like NONE other when they know they have done something wrong. Making love to a poet feels like syllables being whispered along the curve of your spine as you unravel into a million pieces.
Poets like smell good stuff. But not obnoxious fruity scents. Poets like sandalwood, and amber, and lavender, and patchouli oils. You know…the sexy stuff. Poets cherish quiet time.

Poets will always have an open mic or a cool event to attend and keep you busy. Some are hilariously witty. Trust me, you will never stop laughing, or smiling. Poets are true, they cannot keep a secret from you, they easily express their feelings through words all the time which makes them honest.
Poets are passionate, they talk with all their senses. They sprinkle this passion to their work and relationships. Poets are creative and will have ways to communicate that they love you.
Think of it as automatic fun and adventure. Poets see beauty in faults, they will regard you perfect in their eyes, they will describe you so much you will always feel beautiful.
