autumnal equinox

I have loved you
seven autumns

seven times
the leaves have
(with a slight of their golden hand)
charged the air
with the magic
to whisper your name

seven times
I have been hypnotized
craving your arms
with each cool gust

seven times
I have been bewitched
by the combination of your smile
and cinnamon

but the greatest trickery of all
is the way loving you for seven autumns
feels like
(at the same time)
seven minutes and
seven lifetimes
