Urban Free Verse: Small Pieces of Soft Chatter

In this urban free verse poetry, “Small Pieces of Soft Chatter.”

One has to appreciate the fathers of today, the effort they give day after day, the countless times they have so much going on, overwhelmed with responsibility! You have to admire that energy for their loved ones! It’s not father’s day, but I see all this in my boyfriend and what he does to help my beautiful Bianca and myself.

Image of urban free verse poetry,

In this digital art piece, I wanted to create an image of what might look like inside a man’s mind. This a double exposure piece…Trees and branches as thoughts, shooting stars as to how fast thoughts race and the depth of giving and effort in the seriousness of expression.

So this free verse poetry is for him, and all the great dad’s out there! Happy Sunday everyone! Hugs to all my wonderful followers, I so appreciate your support.

Urban Free Verse: Small Pieces of Soft Chatter

Like shooting stars of the night
I could see your thoughts.

They seemed scattered. Small, rapid flashes.
(Scattered and not a star.)

Small pieces of soft chatter, I couldn’t grasp your attention.

My loving heart becomes tuned
To the adverse voices in your head; like a star falling-
Small dark pieces of rock.

How I seem to have lost you somewhere!

A distant look. Distance imprisons thoughts,
closes me out; like a dark room with tangled vines wrapped
around your brain and squeezing you inside.

I wish you’d let me in so I can pry the strain from your eyes.
I see creases between eye brows.
There’s more going on inside.

You’ve taken on more rocks than you’re able to carry,
I’d be more than happy to help you lighten the load.

I know when the summer nights brim with bright light and warmth,
that you feel you must work harder, for winter is around the corner.

But know that I am here to help.
