I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Time Warp" is a poem about a couple who separated but desperately want to be together.
Each night they linger like ghosts from the past, igniting the fire between them.
Watching the clock tic down, holding one another tight, playfully kissing goodbye until another night.
"Chris Young ~ The Man I Want To Be ( Official Video)"
Parting ways seems so out of place,
they are in a time warp
desperately wishing to caress
the harbored love hiding deep inside.
Ghosts resurrected from the past,
lingering in the present,
too afraid to bury the heartache
that split them wide open.
Reaching for a magic connection
to pull them close again,
touching sweet moments,
sharing a smile or two,
facing an uncertain future
within each familiar second.
Playing with broken sticks,
igniting a fire,
quenching their thirst,
jumpstarting flames of passionate desire
losing themselves in those final seconds
watching the hands on the clock tic down.
Gazing into one another’s eyes
tightly embracing loves grasp
with no words to utter
they playfully kiss goodbye until another night.
but a real relationship fights through all that with love.
