You


You
You make me laugh
When it’s the last thing I want to do
Turns me inside out
You
I can’t quite figure out
Why you’re not leaving soon
Why you haven’t left already

I
Don’t know why you
Choose me over her
But I
I’m not complaining
You
Stay with me

You
You can’t just stay forever
But I feel like you’re immortal
You
I can’t believe
How much you just exist

I
Didn’t let you in
But you found a way anyway
You
Can’t admit to me
How much you wobble
Just on your own tightrope

You
You’ve always been here
Why didn’t I ever notice
I
Hold on to you
As you try not to fall off

Can’t you stay
Forever
You

Poem of the Day

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
