you didn’t know
that I have spent
countless times wondering
if ever I could find
a home in you, if I
could linger on the
edges and corners
of your spaces
but you never let me
stay, you never let me live
inside you and I think
that maybe you will never
let me.
perhaps that’s just how
it is, that’s just how
we are, we long for people
to stay, to linger
yet we don’t let them
close enough to.
