Six More Minutes

I have six more minutes with you

Six more minutes with myself

Nothing more

Nothing less

Two bare bodies

Two bare souls

Too much reality

So little hope

Two pairs of

Hunted eyes

Two pairs of ears

Deafened by time

Two hearts

Sharing a beat

Mutually understood

What lies beneath the sheet

Four walls one door

Nothing more

Nothing less

My six more minutes with you.

And, that’s it.
