This free verse poetry, “Coiling Soul” reminds me of nature and love.
Like a plant that coils to retract to a state being or not being. Like a fern that uncoils yearning for growth and the sun. We, as people react in the same way. Hurt so badly at times, coiling into our scars. We, hide, yet we should reach outward, seek help and communication in those that support us. A free verse poetry and digital art piece to enlighten the spirit into uncoiling.
Free Verse Poetry: Coiling Soil
I found you.
Curled around your soul, coiling
Heart—stuck like dark glue.
Tough and unforgiving.
I had mine too.
It was the baby blue in your eyes.
A face lined with words.
A body spoke of wanting hunger.
A heart in need of nurturing.
Called to me.
Like a silver magnet.
I’m drawn to you.
Sparks fly behind flecks of blue.
I don’t think you saw it in the mirror.
If you cry, I’ll hold your tears,
then I’ll water the seeds that I’ll plant there
For awhile, I held my scars tight
to my soul too
But, I soon realized I couldn’t pack
dark weighted rocks anymore.
I could’ve drowned.
I hold hopes, light, and laughter.
And laughter in glass jar spilling.
