Forever

Forever

A Poem by Blue
"

a word overused

"

"Forever..."

a word overused
a word misunderstood

It is but a moment
not longer than it should.



"Forever..."

has been heard
in lifetimes before

It lost its glitter--
a treasure no more.


"Forever..."

said they
in the heat of romance

empty, nothing
desperate call for chance



"Forever..."

said he
my lover, only one

I woke up one day
and found him gone.



"Forever..."

a word he overused
a word I misunderstood

It is but a moment
not longer than it should.

You are welcome :)
Some words can lose value. I like the examples given to under-rate the word "forever." I told my kids. You word is the most valuable tool you have. When you become a liar. You will always be. Thank you for the excellent poetry.

Thanks a lot, Tom! Your reviews really do have poetic touches. ;)
It's a word that is used a little too flippantly, I agree. It has a lot more depth then we give it credit for. :) Very well done!

This is a powerful write about the misuse of the work forever. You did a fantastic job with this. It is such a sad truth that often times we use words and don't mean them. Great write! :)

Thank you, Madalyn!
I love the repetition of the word "forever" it just adds to the point on how loosely that word is used. I've heard people say it so many times, and none of those times lasted "forever." It is something that needed to be said, the word love has the same looseness to it... people just throw around those two words today like its a hello.

no problem! :)
Love the last two lines here, "but a moment
not longer than it should." Really captures the essense of love, i think, as it is fleething.
