    (I don't know where the inspiration for this one came from, fam because I've been in a 'poetic funk' for a long while. I just wasn't writing anything. I guess certain situations had given me a major case of that annoying "writer's block", that sometimes goes around. Forgive my absence.) This is for you (you know who you are)...




    Let's, you and I,
    have secs.
    Let's have secs,
    that lead to minutes,
    that lead to hours,
    that lead to days.
    For entertainment purposes,
    let's enter our secs
    for roles
    in 'special' theatrical plays,
    in which, we're allowed
    to act out of character,
    and raise the volumes
    of those huge climactic finales.
    Let's fill our secs
    with creative ways
    of romancing one another
    on such sublime levels,
    that it becomes, that much, easier
    to see through withdrawal's haze
    when time's efforts,
    undoubtedly, become successful
    in conjuring ways,
    of keeping our secs apart.
    Let's mentally record,
    and -periodically- playback
    the best secs [after which]
    we [would become incredibly] spent together,
    on numerous occasions
    so that, as we infinitely progress,
    until you've 'filled' my entire essence
    with, not only your secs,
    but your finesse,
    and the presence
    of the emotion behind it.
    Let's share our secs,
    with our reflections
    because I want them to see
    just how insurmountably good
    our having secs could be.
    I believe we'd be good enough,
    with our secs, to share
    our secs with monogamy.
    Should we hold steady,
    our secs could last
    long enough to surpass
    the 23rd century;
    and I just wanted you to know,
    that I was ready...
