Illo Friday: Speed

When time stops

slow paces have come between
the sunset and time
any movement is a memory
that engraves itself on sand

a fast race of motion
one have no power to control
lost in a new dimension
holding on to one's own soul

tracing the sands that linger
that was blown off by the wind
is one alone in the struggle
of a hollow tone, a half beat?

she cried to the endless sky
to fast forward to a certain time
when there are no more transcendance
when solitude is not being alone

then fearlessly they stepped forward
in lightspeed be blown
as sacrifices be waged
and when time stops -
it shall gather no past
it shall gather no age.

Time forgot about this place I think, a beautiful blue moment out of time.

The poem is great with this.

sometimes time makes us forget things.. in this way time controls us. it takes a big leap to make ourselves hold on and control time itself. hmm.. sometimes i wish i had that courage.

btw, thanks for dropping by.. and that thought ^ hmm think i just lack sleep.. 8)

.. thanks isay! glad you like them.. and oh, miss them too! actually i am not able to go on a vacation this holy week. we used to go to the beach or a resort, but my work requires us to do overtime again. geesh.. what can i do? i think our clients are non-catholics.. hmp!

carla.. thanks! and sometimes i do hope i can control time..

floots.. ha! i actually searched for what a "bacardi" is.. "The drink is very dangerous, as it involves blowing a fireball over a row of shotglasses, and has thus been banned in many bars and restaurants." interesting... but indeed a nice shot of it while on this beach...
