for you i would catch summer
like a teen catching glory on a lean silver bicycle-
ripping through the streets of Triumph and Nostalgia
as if i could conquer or escape each one
and rise- rise- rise with the reddening
of your cheek as it mirrors our desire-

i will chase you until my starving hands
can feel no curves; until my eyes cannot contain
the bursting of your colours like parachutes on a stale
blue sky; until my mouth no longer tastes the days of August
on your lips- 

your season lingers
like a haze in the sahara:
some oversaturated mirage,

 
or maybe just a miracle
that winked out too fast.

I push and strain and race,
always going for just a little more than before,
to go faster, to go longer,
to be better, to be stronger.

I push and shove and climb and run and strain.
I cannot rest, because rest means stopping,
and stopping means defeat.

Defeat what? I've forgotten. Myself perhaps.
Time? Even more likely.
So short a time do I have to run, to fly.
Because every candle burns out in the end,
and every shooting star falls too fast.

You inspired this! Thank you! :huggle:
