Quotes For The Soul: Poetry

I love poetry. I love words. There is so much power in them. Words can be as beautiful as the stroke of a paintbrush. I’m falling in love all over again with art in all forms. As of late, poets have been my muse. I find myself truly enamored by the way others, like myself, play with words and design and align them into such beauty.  I’m also listening to music with the ears of a poet. Listening to the lines in the same way I’d trace my fingers across a painting in an effort to truly feel the work of art. It’s all just so beautiful!

“She never looked nice. She looked like art and wasn’t supposed to look nice. It was supposed to make you feel something.” – Rainbow Rowell

Falling

You drew me in instantaneously
and captured my attention with words,
intellectual words, intriguing words, sweet words.

It wasn’t long before I found myself falling for…

You telling me how beautiful I was
How amazing you found my body to be
How much you thought of me daily.

I began falling for…
Your good morning texts, our afternoon chats,
your sweet goodnight phone calls.

I began falling for…
Your plans for a future with me
Your plans to “make me your lady”
Your plans for an intense love until we die,
“physically, mentally and spiritually”.

You asked that I be vulnerable
and ready to fall in love, no guards
So I began  falling for…

Your words.
Words that held no meaning.
Words that preceded no actions.
Words that still gave me butterflies
Words that had me falling for a fable.
