Time

You make me out to be the
Villain.
But you love it.
I don’t rhyme,
There’s no flowery words here.
I say what I want.

Because we’re running out time.
Can’t break it down.
Can’t stop it.
Can’t bring it to heel.
Time doesn’t wait for us.
Neither can I.
So just say it.

Tell me I’m on your mind.
Tell me how you wish we were wrapped up in your sheets.
My kisses making your pulse race.
Say how much you need it.
How you pray for the chaotic release our love brings.
Just say it.

Because the clock is ticking,
And time’s not known for lingering.
