Waiting for Summer

The last thing I knew
June was coming
creeping around the corner

But I blinked
and I missed it

Because the chill and the rain
didn't stop for summer
They taunted and teased
and held it at bay

So I made my own sun
and kept it inside

and June slipped
and fell into July
which simply melted
to nothing

And as August skulks
in deadly heat
there's no relief in this

Because now, here
I'm trapped
just waiting
for summer to arrive
