You will, you always will…

Not everyone
will be able to feel my words,
and most will likely
never grasp their full meaning.
But you will, you always will
because you’re the ink
surging through my veins,
and you’re the color
of all my affections.

Time, it’s everything…

Time,
I’ve realized,
it’s everything
to me.

It’s the language
I speak,

my one true love,

a treasure
hardly ever seen
for very long.

Time
is indeed
the most
valuable gift
ever given.

And there is
only one
who shares

their time with me,

and that’s why
they hold
my heart.
