Linger


Linger
stay behind
bask in
the in-betweens
that won’t bring you near completion
these spaces
And doors left slightly
Ajar
Suitcases not fully
Zipped

Demons whisper.
I could say
To you right now
What I know
Is the right thing
To do and end this
Make-believe thing we’re
Carrying on with which
Won’t have a happily ever
After and we’d be probably
Be happier after
If I ever mustered
What would be needed to
Quench whatever is making
Me try to keep
This thing from ending
And letting it go
On for a little
Longer.
