Crazy - Poem by Maya Hanson

The ground sparkles
The earth spins
It turns me, whirls me
Upside down
Round and round

Am I crazy?
Maybe not as crazy
as everybody else
I'm prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me
You're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

The world dims even more than it already has
I throw my head on my hands
I keep on going, day after day
Day
After day
After day

Am I crazy?
Maybe not as crazy
as everybody else
I'm prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me
You're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can make my heart beat faster
You can slip away again
You can lift me up to the sun
You can make my feet tap
You can make my head spin
And you can whirl me onto the dance floor
right now
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You can see dark shapes
in an empty room
You can dream that we're sending
an elephant to the moon
But you're prob'ly not as crazy
as me

You're prob'ly not as crazy as
Me
As me
No one's as crazy
As me

You're prob'ly
not as crazy
as me

    I kind of love this poem. You're a talented young woman. Keep writing. I will check out your YouTube channel. I like poetry that has fun and plays with images, words, sounds, repetition. This girl is going places. :) (Report) Reply

    thank you! ! I really appreciate your comments. The YouTube channel is actually pretty old...you can look at it if you want but it was a few years ago so it's not that good, haha. I hope to read some of yours soon!
