I've Frozen Time & Space

Fleeting as an ocean wave;
Once, surge waters knocked us both for six. "I know
And it is as if only yesterday for me
I held your hand in mine, a lifetime ago.
Still, it holds at its highest peak".
It doesn't reach the shoreline or turn tail & run,
Someplace inside of me, quite, unique
I've frozen time & space; honestly, it doesn't succumb,
Never, do I forget how clear
Our waters coursed through our veins.
Never, do I forget the oceans I'd bleed
For you, nothing ever in me wax or wanes
It's as if some drop of crystal-water still holds true
As if love is part & parcel of every-soul
For even if it turns cloudy or murky,
I know I too want to evaporate & sprawl
& perspire once more flawless over you
Like dawns first ever drifts of morning dew.

Of every-soul! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Mark, Congrats on poem of the day, and nice picture to go with it!
Love can freeze time and space, love can melt it, love can evaporate it and love can ionize it even. Love is dynamic it goes on modifying its magic and everything inside and outside modifies accordingly. A great poem, Mark Heathcote, congrats!
An extra fine poem. Congratulations on your poem of the day.
