Time's Wall

Time's Wall

A Poem by JohnTheSavage

Engaged in the dance of our lives, our eyes meet. 
A momentary glance means much more that that among the twirling feet.
Alas, what barrier works better than a wall made by time?
Less than a generation, but still so difficult to climb.

Away from the judgement of familiar faces, 
Living in the freedom of brand-new places
Perhaps we could find somewhere where our wants could rule.
Then Time hauls me from my dream, laughing, "you know, you're a fool!"

For you're living in my future and I in your past.
There is no time machine that'd make the change to help us last.
I can only put it in the hands of fate as I wait,
But by then, it may already be too late.

Do any lines sound awkward?

Loved the message of sense and forward looking prose, they only change I would make is "Then Time hauls me from my dream, laughing, "you know, you're a fool!"

I want to be an artist, but I'm not much of a painter, or musician, or anything else of the sort. The only way I can see myself ever affecting people emotionally or entertaining them with my creativit.. more..
