Almost There.

Almost There.

Where is that button
you can press
to stop loving someone?

And how could your heart
possibly recognise
a mechanical thing like a button?

How long does it take
for your brain and heart
to be in synchronisation again?

It took me a long time
to realize that you can’t
plan happiness.

The present lasts 3 seconds –
a blink for your rational mind,
an eternity for your heart.
