Lost - Poem by Toluwanimi Ibikunle

When did you walk in?
thought you were long gone
So I bid all of the feels goodbye.
Never did I think they would come down rushing at my feet.
Felt like I lost you to the cold

The sound of the rain, the swift wind
Why did you come back?
Did the news of my state get you worried?
Why did you turn your back?
I stand here awaiting answers to my questions
Cause I thought I lost you to the cold.

Yet I feel it deep within me,
The answers lay down deep,
Screaming for acceptance.
My name had been inscribed on your parts
All of its brightness disguised as pain to you.
But when you got a grip of its shine,
you came running at my feet.

    The situation here is about somebody went and came. Several questions but many things anaswered in this poem.
    The diction does not show much poetry. It is simple language with no clear answer to the details of the poem.
    The cold plays a part in this poem, but it does not explain much, not to the understanding of the decision of the person who left and now that person is come.

    It seems that you gave it an honest try, but the poem fials a bit to be considered a good one. But remember that most poems do not fulfill the potential.

    Great effort.
    Please, you can now order my book on kimdle. It sells for 2.99$.
    Just go to and type my name Luis A. Estable or the name of the book; One HUndred Sonnets, Book Two.
    I would like you to pass the word around, and if you could, after reading leave a review of it.
