Time becomes liquid when I’m with U
an endless torrent, rushing river & I imbibe it greedily
sucking down hours like minutes.
It runs down our bodies &
sizzles our words
Like pungent hot oil.
smooth & easy
until it lands heavy in my conscience
a finite measure of our infinite joy.
Becomes wet concrete, slowing
Wishes words actions thoughts dreams
duties, alarm clocks, books, responsibilities.
Creating the path that I tread upon, dragging my feet
until it again becomes
A liquid endless torrent . . . rushing river
when I’m with U.
