Time and I

I want to wrap my arms around a clock tower
and make it fall asleep.
Just for a few minutes,
Maybe hours.
I could stop my bones from growing,
My blood from flowing,
My arms from reaching,
My heart from beating,
I could blink, open my eyes,
And the world wouldn't have changed
a bit.

This piece is about that feeling we all get when there is too much going on and all we want to do is stop, breathe and find that nothing is moving ahead without you.

this is a brilliant piece of work, I just loved the image of the clock and the prose is just perfect.  You are a real talent, keep writing!
