I've Frozen Time & Space Poem by Mark Heathcote

I've Frozen Time & Space

Rating: 4.5

Fleeting as an ocean wave;
once, surge waters knocked us both for six. 'I know-
and it is as if only-yesterday for me.
I held your hand in mine a lifetime ago.
Still, it holds at its highest peak.'
It doesn't reach the shoreline or turn tail & run,
someplace inside of me quite-unique-
I've frozen time & space; honestly, it doesn't succumb,
never do I forget how clear-
our waters coursed through our veins.
Never do I forget the oceans I'd bleed?
For you, nothing ever in me wax-or-wanes
it's as if some drop of crystal-water still holds-true.
As if love is a part & parcel of every soul
for even if it turns cloudy or murky,
I know, I too want to evaporate & sprawl
& perspire once more flawless over you
like dawns first-ever drifts of morning dew.

Love can freeze time and space, love can melt it, love can evaporate it and love can ionize it even. Love is dynamic it goes on modifying its magic and everything inside and outside modifies accordingly. A great poem, Mark Heathcote, congrats!
