Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Queen on the Throne


It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

A world of evil,
a world of disarray
That's what would happen if we
let it all fall away
And he spoke like a liar
the sound I know best
But I tricked myself into
thinking he's better than the rest

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

I'm in midair, falling
hanging tight to the sling
It's holding me to reality
I'm almost lost from everything
But I trust it to hold
as I hurtle down the slope
My fingers are numb
love tangled in my throat

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

It's taking a chance
in a whirlwind day
It's climbing a mountain
in an effortless way
to reach the top
my heart pushes on
The wizard of goodness
the queen on the throne

It's at times like these
when I miss you the most
It's at times like these
when I wish I was home
Look into the past
but I know I can't change it
So I push back my fears
and jump without realizing it

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
