Poetry of My Heart

The poetry 
of my heart 
spills 
onto the page 

in blue ink 
and fervent sighs

The poetry 
of my heart 
is written 
on the wings 
of dreams

and nights 
of longing

The poetry 
of my heart 
negate shadows
of terrors 

not voiced

The poetry 
of my heart
stands tall
against 
this
world

  1. I don’t know who need to hear this but practice your Love languages on yourself.

    Gifts:- I buy myself fresh flowers every week or buy yourself something you’ve always wanted.

    Physical touch:- Love your body and take your time moisturizing your skin every morning.

    Quality Time:- Take yourself out on a date. Pull out a journal and write a letter to your younger or future self. Meditate or do yoga.

    Acts of Service:- Give yourself a break and do something nice for yourself or clean your room/get organized.

    Words of Affirmation:- Say nice things to yourself like, “I am proud of you.” “You are doing your best.” “You are so beautiful.”

    In other words don’t wait for someone else to offer you the love you want and deserve. Start being intentional and actionable about how you love yourself. It makes all the difference.
