Next Year

Months we spent savouring the subtle zest of sweat,

And the taste of patience sleeping in the gap between our lips.

 

Days we dedicated to burning each other’s limbs like kindling,

In fiery argument and fiery regret.

 

Hours we devoted to mapping each other’s faces,

Sketching past, present and future on cheek and chin.

 

Seconds we wasted blinking.
