signs on our hands

the clock ticks out its steady beat
not slower than it did the day everything went wrong
or faster than the day everything went right
it just ticks
impartial to me and you
or the moments we want to hold for one second longer
because i can hold on to your hand
hoping to keep you in this scene forever
but the wrinkles will crease your eyes
and time will age us
the signs showing on our interlocked fingers
even if i will it not to
but i will not release you
because even if i can't make life one second longer
i can make it infinitely deeper 
challenging time to touch this distance
a revolt and rebellion against its existence
because this is our moment
not times.
