IT WASN’T YOU, IT WAS ME (An Extempore Poem) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema

( for yesterday…)

 

It wasn’t you

It was me.

It wasn’t that you were late.

It’s just you made convenience expire.

I would have stayed forever to wait

You know, simply to catch the beauty of you

even for those moments – a few

but time came to call

and I didn’t know if you really would come…

 

 

Did you know that I had to bite my fingered thoughts

wondering what I’d tell you?

Yes, you leave me breathless…

So, as I ticked those moments waiting

wondering what to say…

That time when I told you to take your time

little or no inspiration came my way

Still, the glee of the moment

just the thought of you was enough to relieve me of the torment

 

When you didn’t show

I eventually had to go

Life called and other issues

 

Wipe the tears dear

It wasn’t you

It was me.

It wasn’t that you were late.

It’s just you made convenience expire.

I would have stayed forever to wait

You know, simply to catch the beauty of you

but time came to call

 

And that is why when you tried to call

the user was absent at the other end.

  1. Nice poem. Good rhythm and expresses a delicate thought without burying it in words.
    Did you know if you hold down the shift key while hitting “enter” WordPress will single-space for you?

    1. Hullo! Thank you for your kind words.
      I had no idea… thought that pressing ‘Enter’ alone was enough… But oh well, another thing to learn on…

        1. Just noticed what you meant and I can’t say what help that would be for me. So much to learn! Thank you very much Ma’am.

  2. It wasn’t you it wasn’t me, serendipity took the wrong turn?

    Su’ this is one of the saddest poems you’ve written and you’ve gone and made me cry! yes it was you!

    I like the candor but of this one, but there’s still a pause in there…you don’t just make convenience expire if you want/need something strong enough; you become convenience,lol but then again it’s just me, the romantic talking again.

    Well done Su’ very touching :).

    1. Well, we could argue on the issue of convenience, y’know? I think that in some cases, convenience can really go out. Trust me, I know. 🙂
      Thank you Dotta! This is part of the whole flow with the grey tale… It’s one of those things.

      PS: Wait till you see the others 🙂
