Borrowed Time

We are all

On borrowed time-

Each breath

Is a gift

And a theft

From somebody

Else.

You

Exhale

As I

Inhale-

It’s a shared breath

Until

One of us stops.

All we have

Is

Fleeting

And shared,

Or borrowed,

Or stolen-

As in Physics,

Matter is

Neither

Created

Nor destroyed.

We are

Neither

Created nor destroyed,

We are

Shared atoms

In a swirling cosmos

Of light

And dust,

And love,

And heartbreak.

We are neither

Created

Nor destroyed,

We are one

Made of many

Pieces-

Fitting imperfectly,

With many jagged edges,

Smoothed

By the tumbling

Of time and emotion.
