Free Verse Poem Deepness

In this, “Free Verse Poem Deepness,” relationships are created upon listening skills.

So many times when we are in conversation with people, we lose the gift of listening. I don’t know why we need to give someone our opinion on their situation or issue; if we would just quiet our mouths, and allow them to speak. We might help them to reason out the problem. Then wait when they ask for our input. Free Verse Poem Deepness.

Free Verse Poem Deepness

You show me deepness and
I hold liquid under eyelids,
and turn my cheek to the window.

You tell me deeper
and I am now in your teen memories, pumping
music and rebellion altogether.

But those lyrics are streaming into memories of today.
You’re snacking Cheetos in a black tuxedo and a crisp white shirt.
You’re playing house and whining because of the bills.

You’re on a motorcycle, racing around the bend.
Hoping to miss the hourglass and funeral casket.

Your eyes pour of yesterday.

You tell me to hold you and say something.
So I say, “I’m here, it will be OK” over and over again.

  1. A wonderful poem Linda, and your opening phrase is superb, “You show me deepness and I hold liquid under my eyelids, and I turn my cheek to the window” and digital image is striking.
