Time in Love


 Time presses the neck

like a beaded choker

glittering with stones of myriad colours

 fascinating the world

like nectar to a humming bird .

It strangles,

 restricting each breath to flow freely

 at least the counted ones ,

one’s number is ordained –

they say so.

 In love, each little moment

is a moment of immeasurable counts,

 while the world rejoices

 at the lost sanity of another creature.
