45 Minutes Outside Of Real Time

I saw you the other day outside in real time
A quietness swept over me
It had to be a vision or maybe a dream
I caught my breath and held it
For regardless you did not will not see me
Outside of 45 minutes and not a minute more
It has been years since that is the only place
You and I will ever meet
Me eternally yearning burning learning
you can only spare me aloof awareness
It is the only place you dare take my hand
Maybe I think wish maybe she too is here
You see feel come ever closer to my soul
for in 45 munites you will take me to the mountain
And give me a glimpse of a land I will not cannot see be live in
Not touch not taste nor believe this place
even exist past 45 minutes
Ever lost because real time is all I see
