Time will reveal everything I want to know now.
I wish time was just the name of a street.
I’d drive a black car up and down time.
I’d be happy.

I like this poem only because of it's length and it's simplicity. It's so unique and abstract. If you would like, come check out some of my work. I think you will really enjoy it.

Love is not forbidden but it is a risky to fall into,but if its real-than you should stay true. Love is a funny thing,it cant be bought like a diamond ring. Love is greif and pain, you feel lost and insane.Love is a wonderful treasure,keep it forever

It tis' wonderful

This is wonderful. I especially like that you said black car; it adds so much more to this poem. I can't stop thinking about it.

This is one of the few poems I can actually relate to. If time were a street, I would keep going down, and up to see how my life would work out. This was great.

The poem “Picture Street” by Beau W. caught my eye. I like that it’s short because I often forget the beginning of a poem or story by the time I get to the end.

I like the idea of time as a street that you can drive up and down. This poem intrigued me – the idea of being able to travel in time. I would fix my mistakes, relive my happy memories, get to know those I had brushed off or forgotten, and many other things.

I really admire that although this poem is short, it is still a great poem. Whenever we have poetry assignments, I write and write because it never seems quite complete. It ­always seems childish and unfinished.

If only it was that easy... (Google Maps says that there's a 'Time Street' in Irving, TX; Iberia, LA; Providence, RI; and Shelby, TN.) Very insightful nonetheless.

If time were a street, I'm pretty sure it would be a highway that we cruise down at 120 km/h. Where does the time go? Hmmm...

Anyways, very nice writing! As the cliche goes, short and sweet! :)

Sometimes short writings like these are the ones that mean the most
