Time - Poem by Tessa Roods

If I could hold time, I would walk in a circle around you while nobody watched.

In the park the music would cease, and all those dancing eyes would stare vacantly into the river sky, for a moment set aside for us.

When it's over, we all will feel better.

If only I could hold time.
