whiling away the time

Where have the days gone
slipping by so quietly
a cacophony of sights
a barrage of textures
my wits have been stretched thin
I’m so taut
I may erupt forth
like an arrow on fire
It seems as though we laughed
but it’s been eons
since anything real has seen light
if you touch me I may burst
just the thought of your smile
and your deep eyes
all sinking into me
like the sun’s rays
melting me
I’m ready to fit a new mold
one freshly hewn by your hands
my old shell has cracked
I may not ever be whole again
but I will be enough
to hold
any any parts of me that escape
were not meant to be kept
whiling away the time
we’ll explore anew
our favorite places
and taste of old times again
