"One the Hard Way" poem for Lena

I was thinking about Lena and I wrote it. Let me know what you all think.

One the Hard Way
Flaxen,
Hair
Smashing,
Flare,
Missiles
Shoot like flying daggers
You badger,
Like a beast
But you have the legs of a mare
One the hard way
Your icebox of a country has shaped you,
Molded you, made you,
Into a fighter, a Deus Ex Machina
The court is your stage
You’ve saved,
Yourself from trouble
But your kryptonite is all those faulting doubles
One the hard way
Your dimensions,
Are endless,
Power plays
After several hours, days
Pass by
And you reflect on times,
When you’ve been so close to the finish line
So say “Adios” to all the fiery-eyed demons
Who keep your heart steadily bleeding
One the hard way
Explosive weapons
Like a fireball, machete hybrid
You are such a very sly kid
You make your comebacks
Deus Ex Machina, your stamina, can’t outrun that
You’re a veteran
Aloof from your Pro brethren
Still a diamond in the rough
Although you’re sharp as princess cuts
You’ll reach your full potential
Just believe you’re exponential
It’s one the hard way

LOL...well I'm glad you liked it. I wish you could understand most of the words though, but it's all good.

Don't really know but maybe at her official website they can do something to help you getting the poem to her, maybe sending her a letter or something. I do really think it deserves to be delivered to the lady at which have been dedicated

Yes, I write all day, everyday. I'm in college to become a journalist. I'm looking for internships now, but that's what I love to do. I was an editor of my high school paper and college paper, all that stuff. I'm really glad you liked the poem. Check out my Martina Hingis poem: http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=276816

I posted it in the Martina Hingis section, but unfortunately no one paid attention to it. haha Oh well.

Re: "One the Hard Way" poem for Lena

I liked it! Specially the comparison to a mare and the diamond/princess bit.
And I even learned a new word: flaxen.

Keep'em coming!

Cheers, Merry Xmas and Joyeux Noel, all rolled into one,

Russian Aphrodite, ye of the golden smile...and tender lips
Modern day Helen of Troy: No need to launch 1,000 ships
to inspire our hearts to vibrate in unison...together as one
as you gracefully criss-cross 'round the court...to conquer # 1

Can you hear the Seraphim Chorus joyously chanting:
"Lovely Lena, the Slams are soon a-coming"
Even the Heavenly Realm has taken notice
how thy on-court passion--and off-court kindness,
rekindles hope in the sublime, my Earthly Princess;


ˇVamos Rafa! Come on Lleyton! Don't let yourselves be Fed-erized!
