Poem: Time Warp

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

Poem Summary

"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.

Time Warp

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.

Relationships include:

fights,

jealousy,

arguments,

faith,

tears

disagreements,

but a real relationship fights through all that with love.
