A Poem by Bluest Blue

a word overused



a word overused
a word misunderstood

It is but a moment
not longer than it should.


has been heard
in lifetimes before

It lost its glitter--
a treasure no more.


said they
in the heat of romance

empty, nothing
desperate call for chance


said he
my lover, only one

I woke up one day
and found him gone.


a word he overused
a word I misunderstood

It is but a moment
not longer than it should.

true words. Humans use this just like I love you and have made the words meaningless.

Forever is relative to your perception. I like this sad tale.

"Cyrus Jones 1810 to 1913
Made his great granchildren believe
You could live to a hundred and three
A hundred and three is forever when you're just a little kid
So Cyrus Jones lived forever"
Dave Matthews - Gravedigger

Wow. This is very heartbreaking. It was written in simplicity and yet, you have transferred so much emotion in just a few words. I also love the style by which you chose to write this. Great work! :)

Very beautiful. Painful. Moving. Relatable. I find myself hearing the word 'forever' in the voices of people who have said it to me and I can appreciate that you shed light on the fact that we may say and it we may hear it but no one really knows how long that is. The life of the emotion is still 'forever' for the emotion but it is much shorter for the rest of us. Lovely write.

So very true...forever is a powerful word and unfortunately lightly used...I've had no one use it to make empty promises to me, maybe I'm lucky. But this is profound

I like the way that this poem is formatted, I think that it adds a certain amount of depth and imagery. The topic is relatable, forever is an awfully long time. Repetition can be a hindrance or tool, just keep that in mind. Overall, nice one!
