Example Poem:

Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Fatima Stanza  Sonnet)

Should you be moved to speak in anger, dear,
I ask that first you test your words alone.
You’ll want to be assured your meaning’s clear
if anger stems from blunder of my own.

Retorts will make an argument full-blown.
Emotions can cause phrases to excite.
We might say words we later would disown.
We want to solve  a problem, not  to fight.

The calm approaches  help make troubles slight.
If I have blundered then I’ll be contrite.

Now here’s  the perfect  way  to  do  this  right.
To help achieve a problem solving state,
My love,  use  whispers  closely  late  tonight,
all goals are reached then embraced by your mate.
