Bernard's Watch. - Poem by John kago

and time did stop,
with a click of this befuddled pocket clock.
my ruthless master,
the heralded king on existence's throne,
bowed down to I.
thy mighty white spirited stallion, untamed, majestic
galloping through the wild meadows of life,
was reigned in by I.
halted, hindered, desisted
oh how poorly these mere verbs depict,
this unrivaled deed, this unequaled fete,
that has for all eternity eluded
gods, kings and all of man.

then I saw her smile
there, frozen amongst everything and everyone
was the very essence of life captured perfectly,
was the very symbol of pure happiness, true joy
that mankind has toiled and endured centuries,
to grasp just a morsel of.
I did regret deeply, oh how cruel
that I, the holder of time, of existence
was not frozen with the rst of the universe,
so that I,
could remain right there,
forever in the presence of true bliss.
