Samuel, Time Hates Us

Did you know time can slip by 
when we're not having fun?
Samuel, it hasn't been fun
These days that we've spent, 
it's felt like hours
And remember when you came 
to the door with flowers?
But time, Samuel-
it's never odd or even
Samuel, time hates us
We don't even have a moment 
that's just ours
Yet, chance made us friends
Sitting in Niagara, staring at the lights
Honestly, you and me, we could be free
And yet we're imprisoned
Steadily being caged in by time
We were from the beginning, 
we were from the start
Time hates us, dislikes us, 
loathes us, despises us
We're the eyes of it's storm
And yet I can tell in your eyes that you're happy
That even with a car running on empty
and not living a life we had envisioned,
We've made a world that stretches far

    I like this very much, especially the part about being the eyes of the storm... moving, and intelligent.

    A share dear poet, that many can relate to ! Some times I indulge in writes like this one, to remind myself that life is filled with moments of regret ! Not to say that this is your purpose, yet for me, this is life. Fine expression Juli ! Have a wonderful week end...much love, james

    wow. this one is sure different! I can feel in this one some of the emotions I have had in relationships. I am torn between wondering if you want to stay with the guy or not. I think not! It seems "he" is the happy one and not you. I like this one MUCHO
