Free Verse – I Have Felt It

A free verse poetry, “I Have Felt It”.

Oh, the volume we could speak if backed by integrity; if backed by the perception of processing of how to dialect is received. Somehow, we get lost in emotions and use verbiage that buries, hurts. It puts a strain on relationships, on family, on love. Growth comes in the deciphering of expression. The questions, why, what, when, where, and how? Learning to express with a conscience, humility to grow love.

Image of free verse poetry, "I Have Felt It".

I have felt its white expression.
I have felt the black inside—and outside too.
I have seen it ironic, and iconic in size.
I saw some in colors, some in gray.
I have watched how it captivates, enchants.

I have felt how it forms and sputters tempered by emotion.
I have felt how it draws tears from a deep well.
I have felt how it bruises within.
I have felt how its pierces the soul like an arrow.
I have seen how laced with poison, deadly enough it can kill.

Some could build fortresses; some remain in crumbles of debris.
Some breed success; and some breed frailty.

These little, uttered ebbs have an edge.
Expressed from an opening of lips.
Lips so luscious and beautiful.
Lips so masculine and taunt.

But of all of I’ve felt, it is to express love,
to be loved, in words, in humanity “I Love You!”.
