Howdy!

Another literary post, anyone?

I’m thinking of making a prose, but decided against it since my mood swings tell me that I ought to make a poem instead. haha! This poem however is longer than my usual works, but like them, it’s still a free verse (How I love free verse!) I still have lots of long poems, but some of them are already in the hands of musicians and literary admirers. (I sometimes, give away poems for free, just for fun. LOL)

Anyway, here’s the poem entitled The Reason Why Patience is Sometimes not a Virtue

The Reason Why Patience is Sometimes not a Virtue

By Kimberly Jane Sioco

*

It’s been a while since we’ve lost it.

Where have you been?

What are you up to?

And so it goes.

**

This is kind of sad,

To see you in your best self,

In your best tuxedo,

While waiting patiently, patiently

***

I know I shouldn’t bother,

My mind and heart are in conflict,

To think that you’re only feet away,

Within reach of anybody yet out of mine.

****

Maybe this is the most melancholy

of all my days,

you seemed happy,

yet so close to breaking down.

While waiting patiently, patiently

*****

You saw me and smiled,

And the pain of yesterday came back,

out of nowhere, like a catastrophe,

bringing me down, letting me fall

A thousand feet off the ground.

******

So I brace myself and close my eyes

Forcing away the tears and nostalgia,

You look exactly the same ten years ago,

When I love you and you loved me back.

As you wait patiently, patiently.

*******

To your blushing bride,

who’s walking down the aisle.

Β The poem is kinda sad, I know. But what else could I do? I’m quite fond of sad stories especially poems. And it’s been a great experience for me to write one. πŸ™‚

I do hope that you’ve enjoyed this. πŸ™‚

xoxo,

Kimberly
