Time is Tickling

I feel like I am inside of a time bomb.
Time is tickling inside my head.
I know any moment you would go away,
to a place where I can't say.

I just hope before you leave,
I can a chance to say I love you,
Maybe just maybe you might not look away,
and you might decide to stay.

I know I have no right to ask you of this
but can't you just allow me to stay beside you like this?
even for a short while, for a second or few minutes,
I can look at your face longer before you say goodbye.

You don't even have to say anything
You don't need to do something.
Just stay exactly where you are
where I can look at you from afar.

You don't need to keep your distance
because I won't get close for instance
you are like that bright star,
good to look at, though it's too far.

ABOUT THE POET ~
Hi, my name is Jheigh and I love writing poems so much and the theme of my poems are mostly about love and life. I want to share my poems for those people who could not express themselves well. I put my feelings into writing because that is all I can do. I hope those people who would read my poems could also find their inspiration to write poems as well.
