A Poem About Wishing Time Would Slow Down

Updated on March 15, 2013

Stay

Stay with me here

today, now

remain still

as the pavement beneath our feet

stay in love

with me here,

before the world starts again

before I remember I exist

stay as sure as your hands on my skin

and your pretty words in my head

Cinderella bade the clock to halt,

So I beg you to change minutes

into hours

and stay.

      Thank you for the share Romeo! And yes, this poem is most definitely speaking to someone specific! But I will leave the rest to the imagination of others! Thanks for reading!

      Sharing!

      Thank you Phillydreamer! And I am so sorry that happened to you! I think I will try to make my partner stay without hiding his keys! I am glad that you stopped by! Thanks for the sharing too! It's great when that happens!

      Time stops for no one. Enjoy the minutes while they last, and if a guy can't devote an extra hour hide his car keys and make him walk. Actually don't do that, because it's mean and I had it happen to me. LOL

      That is one of those things that if you think on it too long drives you crazy! Take care-jennifer

      Jennifer, I just saw this comment and am glad you did have a chance to see the movie. The pocketwatch figures significantly---although it's also a paradox (where did it come from if she gave it to him but he gave it to her??). :-) ~Lurana

      I like this one! It grabbed my attention with the clock image. You may indeed like the movie "Somewhere In Time"...your poem would belong in that story. :-)

      I really like the pacing and placement of your words here. It adds to the clarity and power of the message. Nice work! :-) ~Lurana

      Thank you Careermommy! And I agree, the older I get, the more moments that I have that I feel I could just "live" in! Thank you for the votes up and for stopping by!

      Theater girl, I find, the older I get, the more I wish time would slow down. This is a simple, yet powerful poem, voted up. Great job!

      Real time,versus personal time is a great way of measuring happiness. Minding the pendulous movement is not what quality living is all about - great poem, my dear

      Time is so fickle, rushing by when it should move slowly and hardly moving when we want it to hurry. Nice work!
