Given An Excess Of It

Given an excess of it,
love has become a treasure
too cumbersome to employ
and too bothersome to enjoy,
and is now, therefore,
a dust-gathering pleasure

I agree. You have good way of getting to the core of the feeling.

this poem is absolutely fantastic! you use so few words to describe feelings and realities! I agree with how you describe love when given an excess of it. The phrase itself "given an excess of it" is a good start because it's much stronger than saying: "when you get too much of it" i would enter this in a poetry contest. it's beautiful. actually, it reminds me of emily dickinson :)
