Quote of the Week: And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard

Hey all. Recently I have read a book called And We Stay and from my review you could see that I wasn't the biggest fan of the book I must say that it had one poem that truly fascinated me. I love it. So I thought why now share it with you. So here it is

She laid herself down in the velvet
of dark, the thing chirps of crickets
in the field outside the window,
the window he had opened,
the window he believed in.  
When he lay down beside her,
the boy whispers truths
into the palm of her hand.
Do not leave, he said.
Do not go. Never cut me
out; if you do you'll feel
a sadness true as the trees.

He kissed her lifeline
and sealed his secrets there.
