Royal You – National Poetry Month 2018 – 30-for-30

I know I’ve been pretty behind

But stay with me here




If you don’t

Then what will I do


If you go


Then hasn’t every one gone

The royal You is all I can rely on


I write like someone is listening to me


I didn’t even always know 2nd person was a thing


But now I use it too often probably

Know what I mean?


You’re royal in all my poems

You’re the only blood that matters

You’re the only reason I write


Stay with me

Because if you don’t

I don’t think any of my pens will either

Then I’m just a boy with empty hands

Ain’t nobody wanna hold them
except You
