Borrowed Time

every second
that passes my love
is a second less
that we will have
in borrowed time

the bittersweet kiss
so tender
yet stolen
knowing it
is sourced by
a limited supply

your flesh on mine
soft gentle and
but promising

we talk eternal
but know that time
and cruelly
will cheat all this

so let’s make
each moment special
having as it does
priceless rarity
as time slips by
to nothingness

so every second
passing my love
is a second less
that we will have
in borrowed time

BRILLANIMOUS!!!!! Ok, so I made up a new word; there were none in the Oxford Dictionary (must be some kind of 2nd rate school . . . . . ...not even a football team .. .. ...) that did justice to your prowess at carving letters into art. I normally only tip my hat to the ladies, but Warm, in your case . . ... ...
<===== removes his hat and sweeps it across with a bow (ala Three Musketeers style).
Ever so good, old chap.

I say! Jolly decent of you, old bean! And a new word in my honour ....... wow! More seriously, I take such a compliment as something special, coming from one who who is well versed himself, and thank you.


Making up words can be great fun, and smetimes they do sound just right for the occasion. That's the beauty of English - much to the chagrin of the French, whose language has to always be approved by an academic institute ....... so we sneak in words like "le weekend" and "le football", much to popular joy and political annoyance, hehehe. My recent word was "pervaceous", meaning stylishly perverted. Shakepeare, incidentally, made up words all the time.

Time slips away much too fast...lovely poem...I like it.

Thank you flo - never be caught by Joni Mitchell's words, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone!"

All those moments we treasure are passing, so we must live them knowing that they are. In experience it must be total. In intimacy it must be full, so that a precious life is not wasted by halfheartedness.

Warm, this is an example of what I humbly call, "word-tatting" ... when all the pieces blend into a fabric of perfection ... like tatting lace!

Beautiful this is !

Huntress that is such a lovely way of describing putting words together - I shall remember it. Over time I have worked with several modes of working language and you were a major influence in the use of free verse, as you do it so brilliantly. Thanks somehow seems an insufficient word ...... maybe, like Shakespeare, we should make new words up..... {=}

These are the words I need to express to someone very dear to me. May I borrow them? Only for a moment, just to make him understand.

Quite brilliant. Especially the final stanza. An important reminder to live in the moment and savor it. Cheers, mate!

Thanks FP. I don't know what to say to "brilliant" ....... is thanks enough?

That was so beautiful and tender, but at the same time it was also touched with tinted shades of sorrow....

Thanks Tabs ..... you are, of course, right!
