A second with you | Shuchi Batra - 3rd Place Poetry Contest Winner

I crave a second with you

in a world where

time stretches like a ribbon

boundaries melt like snow

religion loses its grip

and loving you is a blessing


A second with you

in a world where

time flows like a river

boundaries fade like shadows

religion bows its head

and loving you is a miracle


A second with you

in a world where

time stops

boundaries disappear

religion surrenders

and loving you is everything
