I've Frozen Time & Space
Fleeting as an ocean wave;
by Mark Heathcote
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.
