The seconds
slip through our fingers
too swiftly to savor.

Show me how to adore you
in slow motion.



During daylight hours,
I could be anyone to you.
Eyes look anywhere but in mine.
Rivers between us
that you may not want me to cross anymore.

But when the night comes,
it washes over you.
The rogue wave of loneliness
brings you to my feet.

Why does the dark
turn me into your only comfort?
Why am I invisible to you
when I need you to see me most?
