There are moments that are
Frozen like ice in our mind
And we come to realize
That weíre only cheating time
Nothing is real
Nothing stays the same
Everything changes
And life gets rearranged
Now I didnít ask for euthanasia
But that is all I can find
My only hope remaining
Is not to be left behind
Donít want to face the day
The night destroys the brightness
Of the day before
With its cool, silent kiss
The fears of taking a chance
And losing, lead to desperation
While memories of the good times
Always adds something to the equation
Hope

Are you sure we're cheating time? or is time simply a perception that's irrelevant, like distance? sorry... I s'pose most people don't look at it like that. heh  
Well written, JML.  I liked this poem very much

There are moments that are
Frozen like ice in our mind
And we come to realize
That weíre only cheating time
Nothing is real
Nothing stays the same
Everything changes
And life gets rearranged
Now I didnít ask for euthanasia (deep)
But that is all I can find
My only hope remaining
Is not to be left behind"

this one reads like a song to me...get your guitar and sing it for me...
stalking you still, your jm


 you're really alone at last...
you're bored and fading fast,
if it's true you'll fall from the past
all you'll have to do is ask
you'll feel but never be
you want and always need
price you pay for wanting to see
will you have all you've ever dreamed...
