Far Away

     In another reality 
         I knew you 
Time was running  out and 
    the hourglass slowly emptied 
You left for a distant shore
Stolen moments that 
    we shared 
have been delicately placed
   in the jeweled box 
Thrilling passions 
have become piles of ash
As for the future 
     I don't ask the impossible
     Just light one candle 
and be able to watch its glow 
     as it melts - ever so slowly

    I really like the words here, Matt, but I seem to be having problems interpreting the shape poems here at Soup. Is this either a melting candle or an hourglass? I sure hope it is one of those two things! As for your question on having listened to famous poets reading their work. Are you kidding? I have not even listened to INfamous poets reading. hahaha (of course I mean normal ones like me!!!)
