Leftovers

Love means too much to be compressed into four letters
Letters mean more when they go undiscovered
Undiscovered is God
God is the most common name used in bed
Bed is where the future is created
Created things don’t last long
Long is the length of yesterday
Yesterday was the last time I loved you
You lean on me like you’re made of honey
Honey is no substitute for glue
Glue cannot hold emotions together
Together is synonymous with apart
Apart we will only find shadows
Shadows hold in place our love

    Hi Benjamin, nice poem. I love experimenting with the different poetry forms, and appreciate the creativity that comes about having to follow an order or within boundaries.
    Way to go.
