                       PAUSE
         
     When you walk by ,
     I can not help but stare.
     When you look in my direction ,
     I can not help but overreact.
   

     When you speak to me i just want to press  PAUSE,
     I just want to savour the moment
     and hold you in my arms
     because  when I unfreeze, We're back,

     back, back to reality,
     Where I can not hold you .
     I do not want anything from you,

      All I want is to know
      you feel my presence,
      to know what is going on in you mind?

      But that's never going to happen ,
      so, PLAY

It is only the author that knows what he/she wants to convey in a poem, so ultimately you are the best critic of your poem.

Having said that I suggest you change the title to "pause and play".

I guess from the way you concluded the poem that you intended to create a suspense.

The poem also contained some contradictions e.g.
"I do not want anything from you, All I want is , "
But then you can explain that as style.

Good work Goodie. Keep writing

I like the concept of uncontrolled time you were trying to pass across in your poem.I must say that the poem ended rather abruptly.You would make a more lasting impression if you spent a little time convying what you would do if you had the chance to freeze time and the effect this beauty has on you.Like a wise critic once told me;don't be in a hurry to finish! cheers!
