Heart And Soul - Poem by Practicing Poetess

So many things to say,
Not enough hours in the day.
Please tell me all about you,
I'd like to tell you about me, too.

Each person we meet is a treasure,
Filled with riches beyond measure.
Discovering areas where we both 'click'
Common ground assures this friendship will stick.

'I know exactly what you mean'
Is music to our ears.
When kindred spirits open up,
It drives out many fears.

When you explore your inner world
I'd like to be there, too
To plumb the depths of heart and soul
Helps people stick like glue.

Topic(s) of this poem: communication, friendship, self discovery

    If you explore your inner world, 'I'd like to be there too'. A positive sentence like 'I know exactly what you mean'
    is very encouraging in a conversation.

    A textbook display of Contemporary Free Verse.Too many, myself included, get caught up in the complexities of literature; seeking to attract the Readers curiosity via obtuse, abstract underlays that tend to confuse more than satisfy a Readers yen for quality verse. In contrast, this work clearly validates that quality by simplicity can be as poetically powerful as any complex work. I enjoyed this, my friend & continue to impress me with your smooth, melodic style.~FjR'19~ (Report)Reply

    From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank all my wonderful fellow-poets for their encouragement and support. As to any remaining comments that come in, I will not be able to reply anymore individually at this time, because (When it rains, it pours!) my poem just happened to be featured on a busy day when I am packing to move (relocate) , and my computer also needs attention and work. Love to this merrie band of bards, one and all. You're the best! < 3 Gratefully, pp

    charming evocation on 'heart and soul', a phrase we hear a lot but do not define so sweetly as Practicing Poetess has done (Report)Reply
