Free Verse: She’s Holding His Heart

A free verse poetry, “She’s Holding His Heart.”

Love can be such a challenging emotion. I’ve learned communication is the key to the longevity of a 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’s lost his heart inside warmth. In the glass wall
a woman’s trying to forgive words;
No, she’s holding his heart.
