Endless

Endless

A Poem by J.S. Pua
"

My first post.

-Endless-

 

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.

Your first post indeed but definitely not your first poem. Amazing write! The way you tie up the end is spectacular. The word choice is absolutely perfect. I feel like it could flow smoother with more punctuation. I wasn't sure where to pause or where a new thought started until I read it a few times. Other than that it's a great first post!

I really felt this... The second to last stanza, you can really feel...hmm... The passage of time as if it were a wound slowly opening. Whether you adore the scar or not.
Beautiful.
