Words Hurt, Time Heals: Romantic IMprov Iambic Poem

November 30, 2014

She had been crushed/

by words dropped on her
with power,

by one who used/

and abused/

and nouns/

and words/

were tender/

and soft /

like butterfly kisses,/

but only time/

could heal her/

and make her well/

once more flow.

There Is This Woman: Romantic IMprov Poetry

who has, from day one, intrigued me,

let tender, caring words slip?
Let feelings escape her grasp,
just as I prepare for a trip?

The words and thoughts
I’d always waited in vain for,
now are finally brought
as I head out the door.

Yet though these words come at last as a surprise,
I take comfort knowing: Such a feeling never dies.
