The time we had.

the time we had was not enough

the time we had would never be enough
if we had a trillion years
enough to watch a billion universes born and die
an endless loop of eternities and infinities
it would never be enough

the time we had was not enough
a microsecond
a nanosecond
a picosecond
the intense brevity scientists struggle to explain
in fractions of a blink
but our minds cannot comprehend
too short
not enough

the time we had will always be
stored away in memory
neurons finding eternity in fractions of a blink
i need more
why could we not have more
it’s all gone now
not enough
never enough
