April 19

I am searching
in every door that I open
along the way
as I stand in hesitation
my hand
sweaty upon the knob
doubting to move forward
wanting to wait
waiting to want

and every time
just before I enter
a voice calls to me
and over my shoulder
I see a shadow disappear
and the breeze
tickles my skin

I am fearful
of what I might find
behind every threshold
I burst through

I am afraid to find nothing
I am afraid to find something
maybe I am just hoping to find you
