Sometimes I just want to stop time and understand a moment, to make a better second, and a more livable minute.
Like you make lemonade_
Fresh and pure, sweet and citric_
Yes, that's what I need_ a citric second and a lemonade minute.
Then, time can go back to normal, where there is no time to squeeze the juice out of the lemon and where lemonade is just a drink, nothing exquisite.
Where citric is more like discomfort and the freshness of the drink only lasts a sip.
Where all I am is just another sip?
Good but usual, not enjoyable, almost vain, customary?
Is each sip really only that? Lemons, water, sweetness, and maybe some ice.
