Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


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
