Poem 016 – Linger


verb – stay in a place longer than necessary because of a reluctance to leave.

Go away but don’t stray too far,

Stop pushing but keep on persisting,

Shut up but don’t stop talking,

Leave me alone but don’t stop chasing,

For though my days are dark and somber,

I am better, stronger whenever you linger.
