Best Poem of Maya Hanson


Despite the wind
carving her face raw,
she bends to the sky

and knows
the moon will rise again
so she can tear herself
from her shadow.

Despite the climb
blocking her path,
she breathes in the cool air

and picks herself
again and

Despite the haunts
behind her shoulders
clutching her throat,

she breaks down and
cries and screams and
keeps living.
Despite the darkness
that follows her

she takes another step,
she knows
there’s a light
in the hallway.

Losing You

Spying on you
Makes me wonder why
And when I wonder why,
For just a moment
I understand
What you’re trying to say
Through words
And dreams
But then I lose the thought
