Love This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Love is a cigarette.

Harsh at the beginning and the end,

Sometimes making your eyes water.

Pleasant and familiar in the middle.

Glowing furiously in the dark,

It can make you light-headed.

What starts as a habit

Quickly turns to addiction.

Insatiable craving.

Always over too quickly.
