The Love (after Mary Oliver) This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
The first love
I ever got
Would not lie to me
Softly she spoke
but the love died
at the doorstop
when she left
and cried
in the pouring rain
from the sky, later
I realized that
Was love and love
Hurts. Teenage
Hearts in teenage love
Can lead to one thing, teenage
Hurt. In and out
of pain, and pain,
and more pain
I realized love
Is not worth living
Without
