Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


All My Days With You


We spent all our days
Questioning reality
Defying stereotypes
Leaving true love in the dust…
cause we had more

But we lost it so suddenly
Out with a bang, like a firework
and of course, no one ever takes the blame
for lost or stolen items
lost or stolen love

Can’t you see I was happy then
and then that joy was torn apart
But there by the ocean
lying beside you…
it seemed like we got it back
It made me think of those sweet summers
And all my days with you

Playing out our lies
like they were a movie
Fighting behind the curtain, then
pretending nothing was wrong
Running to the stage crying hidden tears

Opening night
seemed like everything was perfect
A glass case spread between us
and the world
Showing off the alleged perfection

Can’t you see I was happy then
and then that joy was torn apart
But there by the ocean
lying beside you…
it seemed like we got it back
It made me think of those sweet summers
And all my days with you

Running without a purpose
trying to find what we used to have
But even sprinting I’m going nowhere
The sand kicks out behind me,
but I’m standing still

If I could only find that love again
Way down deep inside me, I would take
you home and I don’t want to leave
This place where the memories are stored
there by the ocean

Can’t you see I was happy then
and then that joy was torn apart
But there by the ocean
lying beside you…
it seemed like we got it back
It made me think of those sweet summers
And all my days with you
