We’ll Be Fine

In the middle of time, everything stops
Two hands dancing, between the time
and the clock
Third wheel spinning still.
A slice, half part me, the other you.
Can this be true?

Midnight divides us,
Worlds collide at the strike of dawn
Separated by Greenwich Mean and you
Stuck in the London Tower of mine.
Watching time, our heads on a pole,
life’s end of day, crossing from this side
to the west.

If I could hold you, thighs to thighs
Hinged between the time, and eyes
Embers of your light of day
My darkness stripped away
Like numbers on the face, of time
Slowly passing, as each moment ticks
this is my sublime, these mental tricks
of time and mine.

The motions of clock, and the
mind spinning round and locked
With jumping hands from me to you,
and kisses on the face, places moist with grace
In-between the time of you and me
We’ll be fine, in the middle of this moving sea.

When everything stops,
Two hands dancing, between the time
and the clock,
we’ll be fine, just you and me, and time.

  11. Beautiful write. I especially loved...

    If I could hold you, thighs to thighs
    Hinged between the time, and eyes
    Embers of your light of day
    My darkness stripped away
    Like numbers on the face, of time
    Slowly passing, as each moment ticks
    this is my sublime, these mental tricks
    of time and mine.

    This stanza could stand alone. :)

    Oh your spot sounds very nice. :)
    Mine was through my adolescent and wild teen years.More a savior then a grace in those years.
