Day 608: time

sometimes we forget
in the seconds we've counted from birth
that time
is just a reminder that other people exist
its the minutes we've counted between kisses
no one counts until isolation
so now
i hold seconds measured in miles to calculate the distance we've smashed between our bodies
these words
are the only things i've managed carry with me
they are the parts that will be remembered
when im gone
hoold my vowels like promises i forgot to wisper to you at bedtime
and kisses that never seemed to be enough
we can build a brick house out of our silence tomorrow
lets make an ocean of our syllables
ride on that wave til morning
til the sun comes
and it all melts away
