back then

you grabbed Father time by his collar 

and kept begging for more 

like the coy, soft fawn 

our eyes glistened prismatic hues

when summer came 

and in the winter 

were drenched in fear

its skin was warm and undisturbed

for but a moment 

and its rib cage sunken in 

taut against the never ending foliage

the carcass perished

in the chase

the sphere has bled itself dry

and wants another life
