A moment in time - a lost moment in time
A moment in time - a wasted lifetime
This poem was triggered off by a word.. 'Jealousy' in a comment on my earlier poem. Thank you Sammyx360 for making me think from another angle. I appreciate the fact that inspiration could come from anywhere. Please do not feel sorry for me, this has just flowed out from that word and nothing more.. Jealousy is indeed the most effective weapon that kills love. It means total lack of trust or faith in the other person. Trust and faith are the very conditions which love needs for growth and fruition. Jealousy could result in tragic situations.. I can only think of the great master piece 'Othello' all that jealousy stands for... read on..
A moment in time
There arrived a moment in time,
Filled with love and feelings divine,
A moment that could have easily
Been, a piece of our eternity.
Possessiveness, impatience and jealousy,
The tinted glasses through which we did see,
Let imperfections fill our every day,
Our moment in time they did betray,
No time to listen or understand,
Slamming matches we played at,
Not thinking back to see what had drawn,
The two of us from improbable aeon's,
Our prefect moment we did waste,
Of self-pity and bitterness we did taste,
Our moment in time has passed us by,
May never come back a moment nigh.
A hap, a chance to redress,
A time our feelings to express,
Did arrive in time like none before,
A time to grab and restore,
Pride, ego and blatant lies,
Between us stood like huge walls in size,
Too afraid to say what we felt,
Too insecure to let barriers melt,
We lost our moment once again,
As we held back and let words feign,
We lost our precious moment in time,
With it the meaning of a life time.
A ‘word’ could have come to our aid freely,
Not to be found in our rich vocabulary,
A million words we utter each day,
Yet for a word we had to pay,
With a life time!
A lost moment in time!
