Necessities

What is it that you need, he asked?
Infinite time, I said, without hesitation.
He looked at me. Smiled, and replied, it's yours. Is that all?

He laughed this time, winked and said, that you already have. Is that all?
No, I replied.

I did not reply. The silence rifted, swelled and then gulfed into an infernal, infinite chasm.
