Twelve fifty-nine and sixty seconds

Let's not ruin it
with words.

You look me in the eyes,
It's nothing but a second, it won't hurt.

I'll step inside you for that second,
your secret world won't fall apart,

I won't move a thing,
I promise.

But if eventually your eyes
don't leave mine,

or I fall asleep
inside your rib cage,

how bad can it be
to lose control over ourselves

for one leap second?

(The Paris Observatory announced last week that a leap second will be added to the year 2015, on June the 30th. Read about it here)

  1. Kind of like the leap year, except a miniature version of it. Nice little poem! (Pun completely intended.)
