Close to a hot stove for a minute, seems an hour.
Close to a pretty girl for an hour, seems a minute.

—Albert Einstein

Away from you
I’m in agony,

Nights interminable,
Days dragging…

But it’s variable—

Time slows down
In your gravity.

It’s a paradox
That puzzles me,

This succumbing
To your alchemy;

It’s part of your strategy
To play with my sanity,

Invading my space,
Ensnaring me romantically .
