I shall forever
keep waiting for something as
precious as those times.

I get strongly attached to all the things I use, and I recently lost a watch. So, here's my first haiku dedicated to it. :)

You are probably right, I should have been more creative with the words (though I blame the haiku framework for it as well, haha.) Thanks for noticing the pun, and the comment as well. Really Appreciate it.

I think this could possibly have been worded/phrased better, but I still felt the loss. And that was a wonderful pun *applauds*

This is great! :) So emotional, so well written, based on real feelings :) Hope you find your watch by the way-!

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

really like this poem. Like, a lot. I like how it explains nostalgia in three lines and is actually very emotional, even though it almost seems like it isn't. Amazing poem, good work!
