Taffy

In those two short weeks,
I loved you enough
for a lifetime.

The minutes were taffy
stretching out
until dawn broke
in time
for long days
where seconds were hours
only because your skin was
against mine.

And I’ve loved you
every day we were apart,
and those, too,
felt like millenia,
those sticky seconds
ticking by
at turtle speed,

but I’m still here,
waiting to love you more,
love you enough
to keep you whole,
to balance your darkness,
to actually love you
for a lifetime.
