POEM| Just For A Little While

I’m going to take a sit
order a drink
and talk to you
just for a little while

sip my drink
ignore the spill
place my hands on the table
just for a little while

cross my legs
watch you speak
get lost in another world with you
just for a little while

stare at the sky
admire the clouds
let your words pass through me
just for a little while

till reality rears its ugly head…

Mariam Shittu

I feel like this can pass as the lyrics to a song’s chorus. What do you think?
