Question: Do you like this time and space poem!?
Time and Space
by C!.S!. Scotkin

Before you arrive
you speak of

Time, my enemy;
four days or five
not enough!.

Space, my other foe!.
Too much
between then
and now!.

I box my wristwatch
before I meet
your plane!.

Time stops!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
This is really a great idea for a poem!. I absolutely love your first two lines (excellent ones to build a poem out of)!. This is such a clever message of waiting for someone and your sense of time and distance growing!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Yep, I certainly do!. I can't write poems like this, but I love to read them!.

(a tiny question!.!.!.in US to box something is to put it in a box, yes!? - just asking!. In UK we say we are going to box your ears or "What do you do!?" question to a pugilist 'I box' so it did seem a strange choice of words)Www@QuestionHome@Com

This is tight, poignant!. The final Trochee is like a punch in the heart!. Everyone has had that moment when time seems to come to a stop when we are waiting for a conclusion to a situation!.

I like this very much!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

This is a very clever poem!. I like the concept of putting time in a box and living in the now!. Well done!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

He's home! I had to read it twice and I am glad I did!. I missed the connection first time!. I wasn't sure what "box my wristwatch" meant then it came to me!. This is good!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

My favourit verse is the last one!.

I box my wristwatch
before I meet

Cheers : )Www@QuestionHome@Com

In fact, I believe that I've fallen in love with you!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
