Something Temporary

Something Temporary

A Poem by Kwiksie Ifediora

Oh a joy it would be, to be immune to these romantic notions.


It’s amazing really.

I can hardly fathom it myself.

How did all these emotions escape

From my barricaded shelf?

There are the gazing and sighing;
Then the endless denying,

Trying to convince myself that there must be a reason.


But there really is not.


I am not lonely; my friends are envy worthy.

I am not love-sick; though i feel my heart weakening.

What’s going on in my head?

Nothing much.

It’s just that of recent,

I want to see you a whole lot.

Time is being wasted on daydreaming and the like,

My emotions are progressing quickly…

Like a high-speed power bike.

I’m aware however, that this is not a necessity.

The sky won’t fall if my current longing fails to embrace me.

None the less, my heart would crack a grin

If ‘you’ and ‘I’ would begin to spell ‘We’.

It does not have to happen but oh, that it would!

I’m getting wrapped up in this threadbare hope;

Though I strongly doubt I should.


It’s amazing really, but I’ll always pray you the best in health;

Although soon enough I’ll get my heart back

But all you will have is yourself.

Aww, thanks so much Cassy.
All it takes is the absence of one person for loneliness to settle into the heart... I feel this one, Kwiksie.

Thanks for your review your photo by the way.
A portrayal of infatuation the is somewhat curious. The protagonist is not so infatuated as the sky won't fall if he fails to embrace her. Think the flow could be improved in parts. I did not like the use of more to rhyme with more.
