Severed Time In A Row

Several times in a row
and I'm not even sure now
that it ever happened
my lover seemed just to flow
and movement began to slow
like time itself was penned -
a bottle of ketchup on end.


Dispute's outcome was a tear.
Instant, with infinite care.
One look held all at bay
shifted and filled me with fear.
I knew then what I would hear
eternity to say -
you know that I just can not stay.


Time bleeds in an open wound
in still moments I 'm marooned
hopes held hard till the last
my tears which died in the ground
midst the fury without sound -
your absence unsurpassed
I watch my world as it falls past.


How can time take such abuse
is it not tired of ill use
When It's as thick as dough
and it all seems to just ooze
while your memories all fuse
déjà vu - yes I know
but I still hate to see my life go.


Time with her can be wicked
slippery, swift and quick slid
but take it down lower
where reckless seconds have ticked
rapid minutes have been licked -
you'll blissfully owe her
as reality moves slower.


That is just what time does
a 'what if' that never was
stitches in time we sew
for lovers as well as foes
molasses thick when it flows
melting as slowly as snow -
several more times in a row.

Note: the theme of this poem is the perception of time slowing down under certain conditions. It is a collective effort using a complex rhyme scheme. The last word in the lead line of each stanza is a homographic heterophone, i.e. a word that has at least two meanings and two different pronunciations. The second line of the stanza rhymes with one pronunciation and the fourth and fifth rhyme with the other pronunciation.
