Keep Your Silver - Poem by Maya Hanson

I don't want to fix you,
I want to find a few of the pieces,
slide them till they shine enough for you to want them
and watch the world sit at your fingertips.

I will lie here too long,
think too much like always
because I love the sound of your smile
and I want to know what sparks it.

I want to miss you
just so I know I can feel more than smoke
I want to hold you
when you think the splatters on your sleeve are worth more than your soul
I want to tell you
keep your silver closer to your tongue.

It is locked too deep in a barricade,
it is shelved with the things you want to forget but can't
or the things you only want to remember on lonely nights,
bring it up
so I can see it when you laugh
so you take what you deserve
so it slides from your lips like a symphony
'I am good.'

Topic(s) of this poem: confidence, happiness, relationship
