She closes her eyes
held safe in love's embrace
a tangle of

Reckless though it be
time clocks out
sitting out
untold minutes

An embrace
crystalline amidst the forever of long sought love
—finally realized

moments drip by
a leaky faucet
—reminding the couple that the real world flows unsteadily on

Not this
nor any harsh reality would ever steal away their perfect piece of eternity

Two faucets open
a different kind than time
liquid pain blurs coffin
his coffin

His kiss
phantom memory
