A frozen midnight.
Is that a possibility?
So the scales don't dip 
to the other side.
I'd like to stay on this side.
This side of the clock.
This side of the day that ticks away.
Weigh the scales down with all my might,
If I might say.
But those sixty ticks, clicks and chimes
don't stay.
Can I freeze you midnight?
Is there a giant battery
I could simply pull out
to stop you?
Is there a way 
to break you?
So I don't have to exclaim
It's midnight already!
I've got little fingers to entwine with 
tiny feet to hold in my palms
and it's today I must savour it. 
It's today's dose 
not tomorrow's.
