Blast from the Past: #253 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ A Dedication

Still not much better with writing love poetry…

February 2015

While writing poems for “A Prompt A Day For Bee” I have realised that I am not very good at writing love poems. I find that very odd as I am in the best relationship I ever had.

My husband is one of the precious ones who can express his caring, as well as his daring side. He makes me happy. I trust him. And I never thought I would ever say that about anyone. Not even about myself.

You do carry scars on your soul when you had a hard time as a child. You learn to live with them. But ever so often they do hinder you in what could be.

However, I am in the best place I could ever be: The right place at the right time with the right people in my life. That is so precious.

So, why is it difficult for me to express these feelings in a poem? In dedication to my husband?

Maybe it’s a perception I carry, that love poems are, no matter what, a little kitsch. And that I have to be ashamed of them. But my spirit animals told me today to let go of shame.

Well, I better listen and go for it :-)!
