The Pause to My Pivot

The Pause to My Pivot

A Poem by Cobblestone Traveler
"

The frustration that comes with the paralysis of your senses.

"
The dawn is approaching 
And I know I'm not your sun
I attempt to turn around

I'm paused in time
Yet you're not mine

If I could retrieve my breath
Out of your clasped hands
Maybe then I could walk away

I try to block your gales
My function fails

I could take a match
Ignite the string between us
And give a final sigh

But not before my fingers trace
Across your face

The idea of extinguishing something so alive
One wonders if its right

I find your perspective fascinating. Thanks so much for reading.
Even when you know the relationship is one-sided, it is difficult to walk away. The strong emotions come through. Well written. LydI**

Thank you! I appreciate your review.
I so understand your reluctance to turn away. Finding a reason, any reason to linger.

Precisely. Thank you for your observant review. :)
I like the stopping and starting with the different rhythms. The feeling of a machine working perfectly then stalling. Makes it very interesting to read. Fab job. :)
