Most days
5 a.m. is when I’m asleep
And you’re awake.
Later I’m awake
And you’re asleep.

Some times
5 a.m. is “your 10 p.m.”.
When I wake up and it’s night.
It’s when there’s no work
And I’m awake till the morning light.

Some day
5 a.m. is when we meet.
On the street, by your door.
We forget all those screens
And it’s like never before.
Number 50 of my 100 Theme Challenge. It was also 30/30 poetry for the 17th. Since it matched, I knew I had to write it. After hours looking at the paper... I came up with this poem and I dedicate it to my best friend IntriguingBeast and curse the time zones separating us.

I really enjoyed reading this. It's simple and unpresumptuous, but still conveys a sense of longing that runs on after the lines conclude.

Thank you. This was actually a hard poem for me to write and I was close to tears at the end. So, I am glad that some of my feelings did reach others =)
