April 30

like opening a locked door
without the key

like searching for an island
without the sea

like listening to a song
without the tune

like feeling the sun
when it’s eclipsed by the moon

like hoping for fall
when there are no trees

like possessing a heart
when it should be set free

like pausing in time
when it moves constantly

waiting for you
is like waiting for me
