Imagination - Poem by Maya Hanson

You can lift me up, you can drag me down
You can feed my closed mouth to the ground
You can give me light or pitch black sidewalks
But you can't take back all the lines I've crossed

You can tell me exactly what you want me to be
Put words in my mouth and make them a memory
You can take it all back and I won't refuse
I'll look at any mirror and still choose you

You can lift me up, you can drag me down
You can feed my closed mouth to the ground
You can give me light or pitch black sidewalks
But you can't take back all the lines I've crossed

Holding back and holding out so I can't face no
Should have started, ended, fell apart so long ago
Maybe is a halfway and it doesn't need brave
But I need you to ask so we can be saved

You can lift me up, you can drag me down
You can feed my closed mouth to the ground
You can give me light or pitch black sidewalks
But you can't take back all the lines I've crossed

You've built the reasons for this nocturnal mind
I know you can be a liar but you're not this kind
So I scrape your smile against all I've ever been
Try to find fire with imagination and a pen
