everywhere i go i see an opportunity to leave you
and i think it'd be so easy
so i stay.
i stay because
i still don't quite know the color of your eyes
and i like the way you cry
for plants that get no water
and letters that go unanswered.
i stay because i have seen the stars
for the first time through your eyes
the way you look at them
as if you know them each by name.
and even though vines could overtake us,
weeping willows could cry for us,
our friends could forget us,
and lions devour us,
still i’d stay
because you are the greatest unknown
that i have ever known.
