stand still now, precious moment

always dreaming of another way to wrestle with time…

to see my path through the hourglass of dreaming,
of moments that spiral without reason to nowhere specific
except the path
that is meant for me…

are you lost now in nothingness?
i thought you said you trust
the stepping stones you feel
with your barefeet, eyes closed.

you know that time hides behind thorns sometimes…
yet, i thrive
and live with its heartbeat
that never stops to lead its way.

stand still now, precious moment
you pierce me
lead me now to forever

  5. “time hides behind thorns” is so poetic. You really have talent.

    As a reader, I say “This is incredible!” As a competitor, my reaction is more along the lines of “Uh-oh…”

    I wish you the best of luck in the Poets Rally Week 36. Not that you’ll need it ;D

  6. moved your comment to the award post section,
