Marilyn Monroe couldn’t say it any better. We, as individuals are so unique in our skin. Each bringing our imperfections and perfections to a relationship. Granted with those intricacies, there will be the difference of opinions between the man and the woman. In her quote below, Marilyn displays a stance of total self-confidence. This can build a wall. Because of this, each partner in the relationship should be confident to be able to respond in a loving, and understanding way. Long-term relationships are formed of this form of communication.

 “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Love is such a challenging emotion. I’ve learned communication is the key to the longevity of my relationship. To have the ability to agree or disagree without becoming uncivil. To be able to resolve problems together quietly. In this free verse poetry and digital art piece written about resolution and forgiving.

Free Verse Poetry: She’s Holding His Heart

My heartbeats fade; hiding behind a glass wall.
I said I wouldn’t do it again: not one tear.
I am cold. I am warm.
My blurry reflection eyes, of me
Like sprinkling raindrops, the profile of the moon,
breaking through gray.
I turn this direction—warmth dissipates; I’m hurting.
I turn that way—I’m inside your arms once again,
depending on when you have time to spare.
I walk through the parking lot, of dimly lit high street lamps.

Headlights flash, I jump aside.
Windows roll down, voices yell into the night.
Pounding feet behind me, warm arms reach.
A masculine man stands before me;
The baby blue eyes look through to mine. I’m a window.
He lost his heart inside warmth. In the glass wall
a woman’s trying to forgive words;
No, she’s holding his heart.
