Poem: Against Time

I can still feel the lingering touch of your lips
Tracing the lines of my face
In a race to discover the unknown
Bounty of infinite emotion in
Finite time

The fireflies flash in my memories
Of hazy afternoons and broken necklaces
Scattered through the days
Of losing our minds
To each other’s heart

And the correlation of you and the summer sun
Became inextricable in my soul,
So that when the sun kissed my skin,
It was your brush I felt,
Your love I knew
And your hand I held
Against the waging war of
Fireflies and star-filled skies
Stripping summer from our grip
