24th October is 24th October

I’m not good with verbal words,
I’m trying to write it down.
I’m missing you more and more,
The reason I haven’t got a hint…
I’m telling myself I’ve got to slow down,
This is a marathon, not a sprint.
I can’t forget the star in your eyes,
When you looked up to me,
And told me that my height was just right.
I can’t forget the stars in my head,
And the butterflies in my stomach,
When I asked to hold your hand.
I can’t forget the stars tingling in my fingers,
As I dragged you around.
We were lost but unafraid.
Blame it on my cowardice,
And my inherent gruffness.
I want to tell you how I feel,
But each time I only reach 50%.
As I gripped your arm,
Unwilling to let go.
Your hair tickling my knee,
I just want to continue looking at you.
The tug my heart felt,
When you said you had to go.
The sadness in my heartstrings,
I’m sure they were tugged by yours.

    I like most of the poems you write on this journal. It might not be as refined and sophisticated as the ones I study most of the time, but hey, I sense raw potential there! I especially enjoyed reading this particular poem; partly because it is an amiable attempt to combine both Chinese & English in one poem without making it sound disjointed as the poem progresses through the stanzas. Furthermore although the subject matter is an oft-repeated one (love), it doesn\’t come off cliched or juvenile.Seriously you\’d consider putting your poetry on Lamp of Wisdom. If anything else it is definitely not to make the entire world out there swoon over your lines, but rather to gain exposure in a medium that is often neglected in local consciousness.
