The (Our) Future

She said 2010,
Can I wait until then?
If I build a time machine,
Would it end in me marrying?
What if I pass the right continuum
Would I still end up single and numb?
If I travel on time's ethereal rings
Would she at this time bear my ring?
I want to propel forward from my blackened past
Into hope of love treasured and destined to last.
So I travel in faith and in the righteous name of love
Crossing fingers, opening heart and seeking help from above.
