Tongues Torn and Tired


A minute lasts forever

and a lifetime goes by

in the blink of an eye

There aren’t enough minutes

There aren’t enough hours

There aren’t enough lifetimes

to lie in your arms

There is no kiss

No tender embrace

that does not wither

in the certainty

of life

of passing

of limitations

Fuck my

foolish limitations

I want to be with you

bodies aligned

tongues torn and tired

at the finish of time

I want to be me

remembering you

as the water

as the dirt

as the tree
