I don’t want to be cheesy but
When you accidentally wrapped yourself around
Me, the other day: my second hand skipped a second
And I couldn’t work.
I have been thinking of you since then.
Supposedly, craving for your touch,
Sincerely waiting to meet you again.
I think it was rude of our owners to
Pull us apart.
They might not believe in
Love at first sight
(even though I know that my owner is
Thinking about yours)
But if only they would at least
Let us breathe around each other.
Flowing and dancing,
Even before your golden satin skin touched my
Rough silver, I only wanted to be in your arms.
And when I was in your embrace,
I didn’t want to let go.
It has been 3600 ticks & 3600 tocks,
What’s left is just the ticks.
I don’t know what you think. Or if you even think
About me, about us,
That is to say, only if there exists an ‘us’
I can only yearn.
(waiting to be) yours,
The silver watch.
