As I mentioned in an earlier entry, I also enjoy writing poetry. I write in free form for that's how my heart speaks to me.
My Husband Jim is my usual Muse in my poetry and I share most of my writing with him.....I finally told him about this Journal and actually let him read it.......Here I am sitting, waiting patiently by for him to finish and see what he says.......Well he said, "That's nice." Yes, those are the words he uttered to me, "That's nice!"
Here (j-land) is where I bare my soul and all's I got was a "that's nice!?!?!!?" (a bunch of 4-letter words inserted here)! lol Needless to say I was hurt, then mad as Hell, then hurt again!! Well, I guess, as usual my face showed my emotions and that's when he finally redeemed himself in my eyes and in my heart!
He walked away from the computer, where my "Heart" was still written down in the form of my writing and gently took my hands and said," I'm a man, I don't always know the right words to say or express just what I'm feeling, But that doesn't mean I don't love you, because I still love you like crazy, I might not say it or show it but your always here (and he pointed to his heart) and I Love you!"
Ok! I know.....genuine sniffle sniffle........ Everything was back to being "right" in my world......Until that Wonderful Man says something not so wonderful again.......like "Those Jeans look like they got a little tight" and I spew,"I shrunk em' I like em' that way!" lol...Here's something I wrote about my muse........Hope you like it!
to take me in your arms
to whisper I love you
to kiss me with passion
to love me slowly
to look into my eyes
it is you who loves me
you are my beloved
