the longest temporary
Isn't it scary yet beautiful to know
How something temporary
Can make you feel so eternal?
Like the day before it turns to night
Or just before the moon leaves
And makes way for the sunlight,
When the sea kisses your skin
To only recede but you will
Open your arms again to let it in,
People, not just leaves, fall
And drop on their knees
To yearn for spring's returning call,
And from the time I loved you,
Up till now I love you,
And for who knows how long, I will love you.
"Make it the longest temporary you can." One of the most powerful and best lines I have ever read, as said by my friend Zainab, 2016.
Such an intriguing oxymoron that got me thinking about everything and everyone, especially you, wjh.
