Does Time Exist (poem)

Does time exist amidst two lovers’ lips

When in forgotten realms they chance to meet

An endless fantasy they now repeat

In worlds which dreams created for such slips


Does time stand still for memories recall

The music made by legends long ago

A beat that every lover’s heart will know

A song through every lover’s lips will fall


What callousness would miss the bliss here made

Or try to pry a moment that is due

Another world which it’s not privy to

Then put its ignorance upon parade


Does time exist in moments close to this

Why waste our time with words when we could kiss

Music only

Hi Dear Mh,

Yes, why waste time indeed and your kisses do prevail. I'm not sure how the third stanza fits in here, but I still enjoyed this one.

God bless

Kissing is good, but doesn't replace talking. Healthy and open communication is just as intimate as a kiss and can even make those kisses all the sweeter.

Got carried away with the last line and wanted to shout "yea", then Shauna's comment brought me back. Still very good poetry.
