Linger

By , Riverside, RI
the hallways monday morning
thick, crowded, confusing
suffocating me
that's when you walk by
and i call out to you
and say your name
for the first time
in what feels like
such a long time
you turn around
and wait
lingering
waiting
but i walk on
and so you do, too
but when i look back,
so do you
and then we walk on again
last year
those few stolen moments
lingering in the doorway
just you and me
those few amazing moments
moments broken
and months ago
that moment between us
now dissolved away
can we take those times
put them on hold
forever
but we can't
but if 100 years passed
without hose moments...
and so i
grasp them tightly
in my hands
safe
hold on
linger
just a little longer...
