Very beautiful and true. Although I do enjoy time travel stories, I know they are based on the idea of having a "do over" to fix something. All we have is today, and being overly concerned with the past is counterproductive, at best. Thanks for the poem.

This poem is amazing...never thought of time and a curtain to describe each other. Very deep. I like, I like, I like. :)

This was a great new idea to tell this story and I think that the creative imagery and the AWESOME rhyme scheme you came up with really helped to to sound like some ancient poem or riddle. GREAT JOB!

I really like your use the analogy of a curtain to describe history - I think it's very original.
I also like the tone that you have to this piece because it sounds almost like a riddle - very neat effect. This poem also has a sort of omniscient tone to it - it's lovely.
"To cords of time I am held fast;" - Wow! I never thought to compare cords to time, but it really does make a lot of sense since the cords are used to hold up curtains much like how history will pause if time stops. This line is very interesting and unique.
I found the ending to be a little bit sad because of the realization that time can never be stopped. (
