Somewhere In The Clouds... - Poem by Candice Bacolod

i wish time would descend,
then stop.
i feel so much of a dreamer right now,
lost in a cloud,
finding myself in another.
i wish time would descend,
then stop.
i wish my dreams to be homey cold,
to be a taste of the stars.
i wish to freeze them and
keep them burning with so much passion
within me for all time;
for time may freeze them,
on their own,
and i would just stare,
bring my hands together - a mere spectator.
i wish time would descend,
then stop.
i am numb, i am insensible.
in my dreams, i am not
a stranger,
a coward.
in my dreams i am me...
i wish time would descend,
then stop.

    it gives a wonderful feeling to read a poem such as this.
    it lifts the spirit even further beyond the clouds... and
    do you know that a dream could capture an elusive heart?
