Poem: Time Doesn't Standstill

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


Distance stands between us
like an ocean surrounding an island,
hands on the clock silently move forward
not stopping for pauses in life.

Thoughts waiting for the moment,
when the tide washes ashore
missing pieces of time,
discovering lost feelings
as the seconds appear to hesitate.

"Time Doesn't" by Cory Young

Yes, time marches on no matter what the circumstances might be. There are few pauses in life.
