24/7

It is indefinitely indefinite
How long it takes
Moments to fall
But years to fix the break
Thirty one million-
Five hundred thirty six thousand seconds
It is about time, don’t you think?
For my soul to have mended

It has been too long
Enough to heal a break but I am not sure why
I think it will take longer to make
The desperate palpitations of his mention
To cease and resist without the thought of his reflection after a kiss
It may take another eight thousand seven hundred sixty hours
To take back what took but moments to devour

It has been five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes
Since the last time I embraced our love, moments before it diminished
Three hundred sixty five days
Fifty two weeks

And still I can’t imagine a lifetime without you making me weak in the knees

Lyra

Isn’t he worth fighting for
The man I adored
The one I loved like no one before

Outsiders looking in
How to start, where do I begin
Dissecting the beginning of our end
It made no sense what happened, when?

Committing treason from the start
Betrayed myself and risked my heart broke down those once hardened walls
Because his love was the symphony to my call

I said he was the answer to my questions
All the details were never flaws
Before me a perfect man created in thought

Never stolen from this willing
Woman who loved you from the beginning
She sought to end every battle in winning

Such an incredible view
The day we’ll face the world, together, us two
Never askew, sometimes blue, impatient for what I know to be true

Here I am
Fighting this silent battle for me and you
Because I know your worth, do you?
