A Poem by J.S. Pua

My first post.




I have longed for love
But I never lack.
Perhaps an ounce of you
Way back when I was yours
Seemed enough
To show such affection
Until now--
Not lessened
And have endured-
A mark of rain’s abundance:


The withered leaves
Outlived the weeds around,
That I may brag for another day,
Another month,
Another year,
And though I fear,
Be it a lifetime
That I have loved,
And will always love
Until this heart speaks no more:


For it was dust,
Waiting for your breath...
...to have it carried.

Oh, I get it now.. You have your own was of writing your poems in your own forms (Dumb me :P). I liked the lines

"Until now--
Not lessened
And have endured:
A mark of rain’s abundance"

Such flow in your words, like silk and wool. You've said this is your first post. But, is this your first poem? (I'm not bonkers, read it again :D :P) Because if this is really your first poem, I should be damned; I could never write such a nice first poem.

Kudos. Keep writing.

Nicely written expression that shows the pain of unrequited love. Please remember, there are many that will appreciate the real you, and give you all the love that you have to give in return!
Hope that you realize this, as sometimes aches of the heart can be life depressing when kept inside causing you to be sick. Your writing seems to be cathartic! Keep up the great work! ~ Jude :-)

The heart never stops speaking I have found, annoying at times, but mostly thrilling and productive.

I'd say that love is the all-time greatest killer.

Beautiful Write!

My Favorite was the ending.

For it was dust,
Waiting for your breath...
...to have it carried.
