In this quiet quick selfsame moment
I dare not move because it never lasts
When I can inhale deeply and feel the air
Rush in my lungs
Stirring even the wizened parts
Ever so gently back to life
I exhale slowly so it will last longer
Because it never does for very long
I savor the feeling from head to toe
Like a junkie's first high of the day
Unfamiliar taste of freedom
Wholly whole and holy
But like the addict's euphoria
It doesn't last for very long
So I close my eyes to the now
and escape to the what could be
Ride the wave of the haze
In this blissful abyss
Because it...
It never lasts for long anyway.
