Time elapses, once you cross the road, once you get your visa approval.

                                                        Once you fall asleep.

I have lost my senses, my dearest. Once I could breathe you in.

Tell me how old I am.

 

                                       We lived.

                                       We drove, we forgot, we chose to leave.

We dreamt of glass walls. Those walls where you pass to never cross again.

We crossed.

We grew apart.

We betrayed.

We lied.

 

              Everyone lied.

 

We wiped the city, cleaned up the streets, bleached the walls and closed the doors.

Time elapses my dearest. Like you, like me.

                        I have lost my senses, tell me how old I am.
