Treasure Island

Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Can't Hold Me Back


When the sky is gray
Oh, oh
Can't hold me back
Ah, ah

When the words you said
come creeping in
They can't hold me back
Any more than you can…

And I'm just gonna go
Jump into the dark
Take the chance of a lifetime
I'm just gonna see
What it feels like
To stand there, the air rushing by

When the sky is gray
Oh, oh
Can't hold me back
Ah, ah

I'm just gonna go
Fight the fire that is you
I just want to know
Something realer than you
And stand there as you fade
into my past

All the things you are
All the words that are you
This part of my past isn't me
at all

All the moments you hold
All the things you are
Can't hold me back
Any more than you can…
Nothing
Can hold me back

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
