My own definition of a poet - after rereading it, i think it describes a female poet more, just because i don't know that many guys who yearn for true love or romance.

Through a poet's eyes

A poet knows the ocean waves
Better than an oceanographer
A poet understands the trees
Easier than a biologist
A poet sees the magic in the world
But a poet expects too much from life
Sets conditions too high for others to achieve
After one becomes a poet
They expect enchantment in their life
They expect true love and romance
They expect their dreams to manifest themselves
And time after time, a poet's hopes are dashed
A poet's dreams misled, decevied, and foiled
But still a poet sees the mysticism of the world
And still a poet witnesses the tiniest of miracles
A poet keeps his curiosity and fascination
A poet accepts the frailty of reality
Because a poet sees
what not one other person sees
A poet sees a world beneath the world

  you know i really like the idea of this. poets do seem to paint an unreachable picture with their words sometimes. But not always. some write about death, birth, God, etc. But i definitely get your point.

the only thing that i would really suggest is taking out some of the Poet. that word is used a little too much but thats just my opinion
