Affection - Poem by Dennis Go

Affection is futile;
Admiration, another.
Plain bewilderment
Is shed
When the cord
Of breadth
Is severed.

Devotion scars.

Emotion jests.

Too much craving
And the heart
Dies
Of competence.

    Indeed it is true, short but meaningful, all the affections and admirations is vain when the cord that ties it will break. Everything that will be left in every person’s heart is a scar of memories in the past wherein, all the emotions will be counted as joke. Good! (Report) Reply
