Elixir

Our first break-up lasts seven and a half minutes.

This first and only prudent decision is discarded in the time it takes you to find your keys.

What am I supposed to do you ask and because I have been lonely for seven and a half minutes now, I hold out my hand.

I write out the answer against your body until it becomes a declaration.

Break-up as foreplay. It is to become the elixir of our affair.

I am only three things for sure - an Atheist, a Feminist, and a Writer - one who obsesses over the grand themes of love, memory and connection.
