Poetry 101, Day 4: life-time in seconds; seconds in a life-time

seconds

 Day 4 prompt: seconds @rosemawrites; her blog: A Reading Writer

 

we’ve lived our life-times in seconds

played out our drama in numbers

#  x  #  x  #

can you still count the

one billion

fifty-six million

two hundred

forty thousand

seconds since

the split-second

it took me to

fall in love with you

#  x  #  x  #

oh, and the

seven hundred and

eighty-eight million

four hundred thousand

seconds since the split-second

I was born to love you

#  x  #  #x #

perhaps it is that

split second

making the difference

#  x  #  x  #

between me, you and love

between passion, me and you
