I Borrowed Time

I borrowed time to redeem a wish
A first, yet sadly, final kiss
A connection of primitive impulses
But nothing could prepare me for this

A rush of emotions I'd laid to rest
With no intent to resurrect
Then a simple kiss upon the neck
The gesture seeps, the kiss infects

Recalling how you made me shudder
Silent memories growing clearer
As though shot by a master photographer
And your eyes became my favourite colour

    Poignant, yet sad. Though, I wonder, if time is always against us, is that time really borrowed? Excellent piece!
