Affectionate heart

Love tenderly

But

Wanting figure

Striking spirit

That at once announce intelligence and virtue

Is not the admiration of a lover

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
― Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

I like the unique formation of the poem.  I think it's beautiful and simple, I like it! :)

Thanks It's actually a blackout style poem I wrote using words from the book sense and sensibility. Thanks sooo much for the feedback
