April 26

 

in the reflection of the mirror
I see time pass
and I grasp at the hands
that run in circles
ignorant of my demand
to slow down

all is not done
in my time that is unknown
sunrises and sunsets
across fields and shores
not seen
and unheard
yet promised to me

all is not felt
in my journey that is unmapped
love and comfort
in lips and arms
not found
and untouched
still searching for me

in the reflection of the mirror
I see time withdraw
and I push at the hands
that tick in motion
intolerant of my desire
to begin again
