Hanging Love In The Air - Poem by Maya Hanson

Eyes staring through me,
humans with strange hearts
Love hangs in the air,
filling balloons on a string

Doors locked shut,
a hallway of tears,
I’m drowning and running
and getting nowhere

Spirits fill one half of me,
half dead,
eyes half closed
and humans with strange hearts
haunt my sleep

My heart is full
but my fingers are stiff from
going too long without
holding a pen

finally open my eyes,
banish the spirits
and hang love in the air.
