1500 B.C.

 

 

I’ve always

envied those people

who invented that bent

little t-square

 

Measuring the passage of time

 

Eyeing one shadow

as it makes its way

along the crossbar

 

How miraculous

that moment must have been

sharing it with another

 

I imagine

it’s much like my time with you

 

Like we carved out

those very same crevices

the Egyptians did

 

Hearts of stone

contorted and formed

an equation so exquisite

 

That you could see each

and every single memory

we’ve etched onto it

 

Time does indeed

pass by so easily

 

As easy as breathing

one could say

 

When you are falling in love
