Still not much better with writing love poetry…
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 :-)!
