Once

Once

 –

I live for the moment and another one,

never more than once

when I have today and forget tomorrow

in a life not mine but just one I borrow.

 ~

I live for an instance and another one,

never more than once

when emotions feed a desire for living

in a life with time so much unforgiving.

 ~

I live for a minute and another one,

never more than once

life is but a minute in the scheme of time

and to live it longer would become a crime.

    Well perhaps a crime indeed. For sure it would be cheatin’.
    For a moment, a instant and for a minute I would try for as many as I can. For as long as I can. Or until the weight between each becomes unbearable. By nature and/or circumstance. blkbrd

      our minute compared to the universe can be a long, long time. You and I, we stay around for a while and still have a half-full glass. 🙂
