Just you and me
perched on the edge of
oblivion
History in our laps
And time dribbling through
our outstretched fingers.
Life
in sweaty glasses beside us
And love
gossiping with the breeze
as it lightly kisses
our faces.
Light is dripping down
our rosy cheeks
And all around us
are dew-spangled cobwebs
of dreams.

I like writing with metaphors, and then picturing what it would look like if I meant it literally.

This is amazing. I could visualize everything which was really interesting. I can just imagine melted/liquified clocks running through my hands!

We do not remember days, we remember moments.
Expect the unexpected.
Life will always through you curves. Just keep fouling them off. The right pitch will come. And when it does, be prepared to run the bases.
