Poetry: Talking Sparrows

In this free verse poetry “Talking Sparrows”.

I try to simulate the pain of heartache over a breakup in a relationship with a lover, how walking the pain through steps of a densely wooded forest is soothing. Breakups with ones we love can be so painful. But there is hope for the brokenhearted.

I cried the pain and the petals of me.
And I awakened the presence of quietness and the forest.
With each step, I watched floating boats.
Drift softly to the ground.
And for a moment, I felt it falling how fascinating
the feeling.
I wanted to hold it forever and appreciate its simplicity.

What happened to me, to me.
Why it happened to me, to me.

So I wanted to absorb in its depths of scenery.
I wanted to appreciate the beauty behind darken shadows.
And stand in the shadows and watch the streaming light-
I never thought how compelling the particles were, between tree limbs.
I never thought how it erases the pain he left me with.

In this utopia, I could get lost.
Live and hide under the eaves of branches.
Live and hide in the sound of talking sparrows.
Live and hide in this forest where I can say that I own it.
Live and hide in this forest where the whispering of the wind

and leaves welcome me…when I awake.

I wanted to be lost in this forest where I could walk softly, slowly with time.
And I am glad that my pain is gone.
And joy begins to soothe my heart again.

—get lost in a place of hope where you can cry that you’re fine.
