A Summarized Week

It's been a week.
An entire week.
Who knows what has happened since then?

I ate, I slept,
I studied, and wept,
and told myself just one more day.

The times were great
here and there,
when life could have just stayed put awhile.

I conquered all,
I fell abruptly,
and still got lifted up again.

The miles fled
beneath my feet
like water rushing over stones

and I appeared there
for a short while.
I held you just long enough to breathe.

Now, I've returned
to monotony
and the drone of seconds and syllables.

I'll come back--
I'll always come back--
in three weeks time

and we can be ourselves again.
