every second counts

What if I said
I’m sitting at my desk today,
Pack of biscuits open, half-eaten
Tea made, and lukewarm from the minutes I left it out
here under the air-conditioner – every second counts;
And all I feel like doing this morning is
make the seconds stop, and bawl
like there is no one else around to hear

Because quite frankly
I am missing the days we write
fervently and closely, and so seriously;
It’s not everyday these feelings emerge,
pushing their way to the forefront of my consciousness,
but perhaps they have always been lurking somewhere,
forgotten, that’s all.
And what warmth they bring when they do
funny how every second counts.
