Protecting my essence

So you modelled your jewel
Carefully, like I did mine
Perhaps heartily like me?
Thinking I'd let you be
Oh you paved a walk to a dual
In my palm it ain't a glass of wine
You heard of a pint of blood?
I bled many a great flood
So my jewel can grace this page
With its meagre presence
So please be a gem and tell me now
Need I ask you to tell me how?
Know ye this isn't me in a rage
Rather it is me protecting my essence
Please tell me
That I may be
Jimmy bro, that's what we do and should all aspiring poets. And Phil, my 'fan's' silence is hurting. At least he should have the courtesy to tell me the truth.

An elegant riposte Jeff.
Your "fan" seems to have gone quiet.

Hahaha, Jeff, that's the beauty of poets. They create and recreate and never stop from creativity...smiles.
