The Longevity In Seconds

The Longevity In Seconds long poem

Photo by Andrew Nourse

Let’s, you and I,
have secs.
Let’s have seconds
that lead to minutes
that lead to hours
that lead to days.
For entertainment purposes,
let’s enter our secs
for roles
in ‘special’ theatrical plays
in which we’re allowed
to act out of character
and raise the volumes
of those huge climactic finales.
Let’s fill our seconds
with creative ways
of romancing one another
on such sublime levels,
that it becomes that much easier
to see through withdrawal’s haze
when time’s efforts,
undoubtedly, become successful
in conjuring ways
of keeping our seconds apart.
Let’s mentally record
and, periodically, playback
the best secs [after which]
we [would become incredibly] spent together
on numerous occasions,
so that as we infinitely progress
until you’ve ‘filled’ my entire essence
with- not only your seconds-
but your finesse
and the presence
of the sentiment behind it.
Let’s share our seconds
with our reflections,
because I want them to see
just how insurmountably good
our having seconds could be.
I believe we’d be good enough
with our seconds to share
our seconds with monogamy.
Should we hold steady,
our secs could last
long enough to surpass
the 23rd century,
and I just wanted you to know,
that I was ready…

20 Seconds In A Moment

20 Seconds In A Moment short poem

20 seconds in a moment. You caught me when I was falling. Stared my eyes and felt a flash! Hearts are flying and made a clash. 20 seconds in a moment. Caught your smile when I was glaring. Touched my
