What a Waste

A moment teetering; between pity & loathing 
A moment to reflect 
A moment watching 

A moment  I could control; just out of reach
A moment to assemble words
A moment of slurred speech 

A moment to hold a hand; to say I care
A moment to whisper lets go fuck
A moment to giggle n stare

A moment I knew was there; a certain clarity
A moment I didn't take 
A moment near an event horizon; lasts an eternity

I agree with the above comments. A series of moments that make us who we are and what we are left with to remember.

The way I look at it Jeff, it's moments that matter. Each moment opening the door to other moments, like a series of endless doors. Infinite.

I call it The Power of Now.

I like this poem Jeff, there's lot to ponder in it about regret, hesitation, contemplation and just getting on and living. As they say, our lives are just a series of moments....Paul
