When I was finally in your arms -
My spirit rose up to the stars -
Like a bird in blissful flight
And I wanted time to stop.

I could have stood there for forever -
Finally in your arms again -
Like a child safe & warm
And I wanted time to stop.

I didn't want to let you go -
I didn't want to say good-bye
I didn't want to drive away....
But I couldn't make it stop.

A very sweet poem. I liked the way you led me into anticipating the last line of each verse would be the same, and then you closed with the shift.

As for your little saying at the bottom - lured with your tongue? I can never be lured by somebody sticking her tongue out at me! hmmmmph - lol

"And as our tomorrows drift
To reflections of yesterday,
We weekely chase the hands so swift
Of Time slipping away."

Ain't Time the worst enemy a heart ever had?

The hands of a clock
Are like hands that are waving goodbye
And, when you're in love,
Every tick of the clock is a sigh.
And so I make this wish,
A wish every heart understands
That, when you're with me,
In our own secret world there will be
A clock without hands

(Johnny Mathis)

Good poem, Femme

I really liked this....been there, done that, got the Sweatshirt and etc.. to prove it.

Cruel and unkind.
It hurt me with it's second hand
Alone another night"

The tick-tock of the clock is painful,
all sane and logical,
I want to tear it off the wall!

Very powerful and concise as usual!

Don't we all wish Time could stop? Another gem, PFF.

Thinking about Time, I guess we're all familiar with the Bard's wonderful sonnets on Time? I've just done an essay on no. 64.
We're all afraid that "Time will come and take my love away, this thought is as a death which cannot choose/ but weep to have that which it fears to lose." I think your poem was beautiful, pFF.
