Heartfelt Words: Poem 27

'Heartfelt Words' Poem 27, is one part of a series of profound poems by New Zealand poet Pearldiver. The poem here is about being able to speak from the heart, about being completely open and honest, about showing the other person that you are sincere and mean what you say! For many, this is one of the hardest things that they could ever be expected to do, in fact, it is often far too hard an event for them and therefore, those potentially life changing words go unsaid. An opportunity to enhance a relationship ultimately is lost as well.

Irrespective of any inability to communicate one's true feelings so openly, there are times in one's life when only heartfelt words will do. For those who can't speak from the heart, why would you expect the one you wish to hear you, to accept that you would offer such a substandard effort, given the reality that the only true words for that specific occasion must, for the purpose of the occasion, be spoken straight from the heart? Learn to develop those skills, they may save your life, or the life of someone else one day. Surely, heartfelt words are more prized than hollow, insincere words... what do you prefer?

Heartfelt words are genuine words, the ones that make a major difference in someone's life and lets them know that they are genuinely cared for. Heartfelt words demand to be respected, to show respect and to be recognized as sincere sentiments, from the heart. Enjoy Poem 27, it demonstrates the importance of special words and how they can be life changing, when you deliver them in the most sincere manner and when they are needed most.

Poem 27:

‘Heartfelt Words’

To convince her not to leave, in doubt unfounded

Sweet words caress a once bitter tongue

Opposing tastes blended, enhanced to cinnamon effect

Clamoring to catch, one last departing breath

One final chance, to be conveyed and heard

To be accepted, without any chains of hesitation

Welcomed by a heart in anguish, not so dissimilar

Yet desperately trying to deny

That hint of a smile’s persistence

From those heartfelt words, urgently found

Now passionately falling down

Down, unconsciously

Conceding to the arms...

of… “I’m Sorry!”

      Hi shiningirisheyes, thank you very much for that much appreciated supportive compliment... I understand exactly what you mean... it seems that so many struggle to be so open as to let another know how they truly feel.. I find that very sad.. but if you can teach them to say that they love you when leaving.. which is such an important thing.. then perhaps it can always be a natural occurrence to show how much they love you, on the way in... heartfelt words are so special.. take care.. PD

      You write beautiful poetry with such important meanings behind them. I was always someone who never had a problem letting people know I love them. My family was another story so I worked on them too. Now they all say "I love you" when walking out the door.

      Great write

      I guess, 'listening' from behind a screen, requires one with positive listening skills, to make objective adjustments that ensure one's listening skills and interpretation are not negatively influenced by a talker's speech 'impediment'... did you consider that? As I said, after reading your post, "for the poet... it intimates that 'usually' his work is not in any respect touching!"

      Thank you for clarifying the point!?? - I don't sincerely believe that I did in my first post... so maybe this will help...

      'Unusually' means: not habitually or commonly occurring or done.

      "Do you see anything negative here?" - Other than an 'unusual' need to spar with me continually... the passive aggressive punctuation, clearly ambiguous choice of words, and a defensive (insincere) apology? Pass.

      Why not just declare your genuine intentions, instead of attempting to demonstrate an impression that I'm negatively flawed or obtuse, in some respect? As I said... I don't understand your misinterpretation or your style.... screens have nothing to do with the words we 'choose' to use.. irrespective of talking or listening... it's the Choice that carries the purpose... cloaked or otherwise... love or hate - exceptionally stated or merely slurred.

      I guess, talking from behind a screen, and not being able to see the body language, things can be interpreted in many ways. 'Heartfelt Words, indeed!' - meaning, yes, indeed there are heartfelt; 'Unusually' - exceptionally; 'touching' - touches the heart! Do you see anything negative here? I am sorry if it came across as negative, but that's not what the intention was. I guess, sometimes we read others text with the impression we have of them. Thank you for clarifying the point!

      Should any apology not be heartfelt and sincere - thus 'touching' in a genuine (natural) sense? This poem is about what it takes to be sincere, which is a genuine 'usual' emotion - why then would the words to an apology be 'unusually' (unnaturally) touching, unless they were actually insincere? Mai khaw jai - I don't understand the relevance of the words 'unusually touching' - to the context and purpose of the poem... In my cultural understanding it seems to completely contradict the positivity and sincerity of the title and meaning of the poem.. for the poet.. it intimates that 'usually' his work is not in any respect 'touching!' - Both interpretations can only be seen as a negative swipe at the author... why that would be.. remains undeclared.. thanks for your review and your 'unusual' opinion... take care.

      For someone to say the words, " I'm sorry " And if it comes from the heart. How can we not forgive them? Acceptance is the first step to believing. Loved this. Thank you..

      Hi Ken, what you appear to be seeking is not to be found beneath the rock of self loathing, nor within the dry warmth of a desolate sandy lair of loneliness... being the lover of life that I am, I merely learned to place less emphasis on the haunting calls to be so critical... We don't fail at love, if we recognize its existence and commit our skills to ensuring that what we recognize, should not be continuously questioned by conditional needs and insecurities.

      Perhaps my friend, the life preserver you refer to can be found in the words of a poem that I wrote called "This True Test of Self" - it was, after all written in response to something else you posted... The words of the poem are the key.. not the preamble... perhaps they fit the nature of the scorpion too accurately, having been written by one!

      I hope you get a chance to read that work Ken... it is also heartfelt. The link to it is above in the 'other works by PD' column.

      I thank you most humbly for the faith you have placed in me as a poet, but I am no master, just one unafraid to bare the depth within a soul that is not so willing to find solace in the rocks. Cheers for your review of this piece and our mutual strength... our Scorpio hearts! Take care mate.. PD

      Your opening explanation to your poem 27 is stunning to me, why? Because in those words you've penned there I am. I have tried to love and be loved in return, most of my love was lustful love. I wish I had found my true soulmate so that we could both truly have expressed the love we intended for each other. However, although I was married twice for a combined total of 23 years, love left both marriages.

      You sir, appear to have the formula for true love. Being the Scorpio I am, I failed miserably at truly heart felt love, but was a marathoner when it came to physical love. Am I making any sense? I may be way out in the deep end drowning here, throw me a life perserver if you think there is any hope for me, otherwise leave me sink to the dark abyss where I may belong.

      As for your poetry what can I say, every time I come here I humbly place my tail between my arse and learn from the true poet. I am a mere student Pearl, you the teacher. I admire your work and will always make an appearance here from time to time. I pass this on to share with fellow writers/poets as it is so deserving. You are brilliant mate.
