At the time of writing (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

At the time of writing;

You are hovering in the atmosphere of my thoughts,

Beating in the cavity of my chest-

And in each moment, I’m taking notes.

In his citation;

The author of creation uttered you to existence.

I hoped my craftsmanship with words would “word” you closer to me,

Woe poor me, I’m still writing in your absence!

I am entangled in your web of words,

Your mouth is my greatest snare.

If you only knew the effects of your words in my world-

You’d utter them with much care.

At the time of writing;

Sunsets are red and I am blue.

Shakespearean poetry holds me

In the distress of missing you!

At the time of writing;

I only dream of happily ever afters.

But that’s at the time of writing;

I know not what happens after..

    1. Thank you so much! Lovely comment, glad you loved the poem. Plus, you really are a super amazing writer! On several occasions, I’ve found myself rereading your posts (my favorite is ‘why am I here?’) It’s only fair for me mention. Besides, I’m pretty sure that someone out there will have an awesome time on your blog. I just know it!
