Speak to me

Speak to me not in riddles, but with your truth, plain and uncomplicated for there is no need for riddles when your thoughts are spoken with good intent and their purpose is for well being and understanding Speak to me not in angers potency, but after well contemplating its meaning and source for a conversation held in anger cannot be presented with clarity of thought or deed leaving possibility of tortured minds, or wounded hearts Speak to me not with disrespect, but with honor and integrity for I will not consider your words, or hold them as valid or worthy unless, they are justified with decency Speak to me not only with words, but with the language of your heart for at times, there is no need of words when one look can speak a paragraph, and one touch can say all that need be said L.ruby Meyer

    It is a beautiful poem, but with all due respect, it is free verse, not Iambic pentameter.

    Giorgio, just visited your page, and will return to read more, but just had to say I now have a crystal clear grasp on what an Iambic pentameter is, as a large portion of your pieces are as such. X Peace

    Much appreciated Giorgio, I "ve written poetry since childhood but never studied "form' etc., though now, I am beginning to somewhat, as it is required here. I'm a little oppositional to qualifying form in art, music, poetry etc, believing "it is what it is', though I do understand the usefulness, and even need to do these things, really I do. Felt inspired to share a bit there Giorgio, but seriously ,thank you. Peace x Ruby

    WHoa! This is beautiful L.Ruby! Words filled with riddles tend to distort information. I like that you said sometimes words are not needed -that is the beauty that comes when one speaks with the heart. Very well written!

    Beautiful Ruby, absolutely truth. Words spoken in anger are never heard. I can relate wholeheartedly. Lay
