While Minding My Business

A fortnight later

And he’s gifted me

A glimmer of hope

This, while simply minding my business

He could be the one

But he often disappears

Then I’m left to ponder

My only warning, being a moment’s notice

Then he reappears

As if to make amends

My heart jumping with joy

As if to tell me, “Didn’t I say so?”

Who does he think he is?

Leaving me in disarray

Telling me about his day

Then gone in a whiff

I better stay calm

Guard this heart of mine

Lest she warms up to him

For the grandest of falls

A fortnight to come

I may be left morose

And so maybe it’s time

To dish out my trusty detachment


Lovers tiff, they near their brink

Almost, amounts to naught

The ‘what ifs’, the ‘could have beens’, all sunk deep

Almost, it spearheads the shipwreck.


Lovers distant, but in love

And almost is to blame for the wedge

Happy endings in search of the shores

Almost, repels, casting them to tides high.

Eventually – Part 2











Eventually is a song I sing to myself

The stars will align just for you and I,

For now I walk the miles with baggage to repel

You’ll hear the song’s end and understand why


Eventually is a pretty shell that reminds of you

Invaluable treasure resonating a heart’s story

Dejected and downhearted, days have you blue,

Long may the wait be, to know you’re right for me.


Eventually is a door waiting to be unlocked

Each day checked with undying hope

It remains unopened till destiny is chalked

Something will have to give, but for now you must cope.


Eventually seems like the universe unending

Change is due but your affection it has yet to claim

If you must let go, spread out your wings,

For I know not how long till we rekindle the flame.
