You make me discover faces I never thought I had

by Chua Han Au

you make me discover faces I never thought I had
you spurred me to write amorous poetry
and elevated me
to another style of writing
that was fresh and something worth
discovering further
you were a miracle

tonight I am thinking of you
sans longing

there is so much more to write
I can now empathise with Plath’s pellucid descriptions

but I can’t put all of what I feel here —
every feature and poetic connection —
I catch you stealing glances
the world has too many pairs of eyes

everything shall be kept in secrecy
to be buried and kept alive
to be read once again
when I turn 30 or older

you make me sigh
and discover faces I never thought I had
