It is time.
The future cowers
behind our past.
And now,
the hours
have converged into
this one moment,
when I must
free my hand
from yours.

  1. In your poem I read how difficult it is sometimes to move from past into future….especially when holding someone’s hand when that journey will not be together. Thank you, Thotpurge, for supporting Poetry Jam. I always enjoy your work….wherever I see it!

    1. Thanks a lot Mary. It’s a pity Poetry Jam needs to go offline now.. but will catch up with you on other forums. Thanks so much for your encouragement and kind words.


  2. Ah! I love this one! However, I read it just after listening to CΓ©line Dion’s “Goodbye’s” (The Saddest Word). Eeesh, I’m going to have to put on some really upbeat music now!
    Your words were perfect, though.


    1. Thanks Gabriella… love your interpretation as well…more breathing space! This is the fun of poetry isn’t it… the brevity lets us apply our own framework to it!
