Poem: She Wants To Freeze Time

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Your Arms Feel Like Home" by 3 Doors Down

poem-she-wants-to-freeze-time

Like on the fourth of July,
she sees fireworks
each moment he holds her close,
like the night sky lights up.

No longer is she broken
Like a puzzle no one can solve,
he makes her feel complete
like she is on top of the world.

She wants to freeze this moment,
making time stop
with his hand holding hers,
letting her hear the beautiful song
he sings to her heart.

Kari,

I do not believe women need a man to feel complete, but sure enough those are the words i wrote down.

I should have put...give this feeling too or something to that nature.

Women do no need a man to feel complete.

As for wanting to freeze time...she knows it feels like the perfect moment and it will not last. So she wants to treasure it while she can.

Thanks for reading.

We women should not need a man to feel complete, but some of us do, and, having found him, feel complete. I feel bittersweet reading this poem. And happy she has a moment to freeze in her mind.

Good and romantic poem. She will need the dagger from the sands of time.

I like the way she would like to freeze time to hold on to happy moments. Better still, she can be compassionate and everything falls into line. Great piece of poetry, Brenda!
