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.
