Free Verse Poem Songbirds and Words

In, “Free Verse Poem Songbirds and Words,” I know the consequences or the vulnerability of words if spoken in the appropriate or inappropriate fashion.

There is always an impression left behind. Good or bad. What I’m trying to say here in this “Free Verse Poem Songbirds and Words” is; if we use our words in a simple, straightforward and respectful way we can be appreciated for whom we truly are. At times it can be trying when others use words to inflict hurt, but, we should reason with this, could this person be hurting and acting out in anger. Don’t take it personally. It doesn’t have anything to do with you. Hug them, or offer a listening compassionate ear.

Free Verse Poem Songbirds and Words

Today is a watercolor painting.
Mind sprinkled with
steaming evaporating coffee,
milky–way vanilla flavored creamer.

Tongue soothing
down the throat
into MY tummy.

This is Friday cracking a new dawn,
restful dreamy promises inspired
from the night before. Somewhere,

a canvas without words
begs for a songbird song.

Such as, visual and sound effects are often employed.  It can have as many lines as the writer wishes.

Quote Expectations

Quote Expectations

In this Quote Expectations. I’m going to indulge on words, relationships, and expectations. It’s clear that one can sabotage their own relationship with a potential life partner. I’m not a marriage counselor or a therapist. I’m actually in an experimental stage of my own relationship. Lately, I have set the bar too high in expectations of my relationship with my boyfriend. And, this was completely wrong of me.

In this site, I’m going to reveal myself in the raw, and real of true emotions. I am not afraid of what others opinions are of me. I totally love whom I’ve become in my imperfections and perfections. There is no ONE who can judge me except for myself.

 

I have come to accept the beautiful soul of whom I’ve become. Most of you who follow me, know I bare honesty and integrity in my true life experiences shared through my poetry and stories.

I was fantasizing about living together. Or marriage. Granted, we have been seeing each other for awhile. Yet, I did something that almost pushed him away for good. I talked about my expectations to him. Thus, creating this standard he must follow. Over time, I literally pushed him away, cause he felt he couldn’t meet my needs. He couldn’t handle the pressure.

We all move in different circles. Some of us at a faster pace. Some slower. Words cut deep to the soul, and I made my love feel inadequate. I felt horrible when he poured his feelings to me. I sincerely apologized for my actions and begged him to forgive me.

Quote Expectations

Love explicitly.
Love without expectations or doubt.
Listen to your heart, no matter the price.
No matter the price.

©Linda J. Wolff, “Quote Expectations. 

Quote expectations are the series of pieces titled after meditative deep thinking of true-self, I’ve begun in the last 24 months as I have struggled to manage the loss of too many deaths in this time frame. In this post specifically, I have embraced the duality of Self I’ve experienced: loss/in grief, not/in pain, love/as part, how I perform myself in mother/girlfriend role and endure.

Micro-Poetry: New Dawn

In this micro-poetry piece, “New Dawn.”

Through this Micro-Poetry: New Dawn and the Depth of Words. I’m sharing emotions! 

And here at Wolff Poetry, I share all my thoughts, good and not so good, all my emotions too, cause I know someone is searching for answers. And I want to help.

Image of Micro-Poetry New Dawn

So, today, I’m speaking regarding using words wisely when it comes to relationships of spouses, lovers, boyfriends or partners. And in, using words with caution and expression goes long ways to strengthening love.

When words become the fuel for silence, one knows they’ve gone too far with an open mouth. I said something foolish to my boyfriend of three years yesterday.

And, I didn’t take the time to comprehend the depth of the words I spilled from my loose lips. I hurt my boyfriend to the point of silencing him. Yes, of course, we are all capable of saying things without considering for a moment that your significant other could have had a bad day.

Yesterday, was that day for me. I get impatient sometimes. Let alone; I want my relationship to progress faster with him then what it does. But, not everyone moves at the same pace of life or love like I do.

I am the hare in the children’s story of The Hare and the Tortoise. Do you remember that book, or have you read it. My boyfriend is the tortoise. I push too hard for something, and he is a little more methodical about love. He has been teaching me patience.

Therefore, become the rebuttal of his emotions, and I deserved them. He spoke in a tone of how it hurt him. It cut right through to the walls of my heart. It stung.

But yet, I knew I had to do something to change how he felt. First, I knew I had to apologize for my words I had used.

Here, is what I said.

“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking! I have been wrong in the way I say things and handle things with you! All I want is for you to be happy in life always. I love you and every time I gaze at you as my boyfriend, I see you as my husband.

I know that is the furthest thought from your mind right now due to what’s going on in life. So no matter what issues you have whether it’s your job, losses, bedroom, or relationship. I will always be by your side.

If I had to do you and me over again. I would do it in a heartbeat. Why? The reason is, your my heartbeat, mind, body, and soul. You’re my everything!”

Indeed, he forgave me, and you know, we all love the making up part of a relationship, the tears, hugs, and intimacies.   There’s More Poetry in this Click!  

So with this, I wrote this little micro-poetry with tenderness and reflection in mind, hope you enjoy it!

MicroPoetry: New Dawn

air.
Fluttering movement of a thousand beats.
A quiet new dawn and blue skies.
Changes felt in the breeze.
Reflection is floating leafs.
Moments is the solace of knowing.
And words linger with love.
Hopes rise with crawling yellow fingers.
