13/05/19

I want to drink up this evening
every last drop
to absorb all the essence
keep it bottled up

I want to swim in this feeling
to float on this moment
these shared seconds
the hushed voices and the screams
the sweat dripping from your chin
the half-stifled gasps
the tears that barely spill

you’re pulling me through the oceans in my mind
I'm fighting to be here - I am here
I’ll stay till the night fades into white
as if there’s nothing more under the sky
but this room in this city
with us inside

but our seconds will run out
and the night will go on
the sun will come up the next morning

we will be gone
