My New Shadow This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
The games we played
Monopoly
You hated them
But you still sat
And listened
To me complain
And secretly let me
Win

Dress-up, my favorite
That fun shirt
You let me wear
Everything you had
And never
Said no
Even if it was your
Favorite

So proud of your scar
You never let me know
How sick you really were
They told you not to play out in the
Cold
But I love the snow
So you snuck out
For me

I am not the best at spelling
So you turned my e into an a
So my paper could hang next to
Yours

I remember the day your uncle
Died
You came to
Me
Then, I first saw you
Cry
I told you I would always be there
I told a lie

But now,
Now I know you are
Everywhere
And when you went
I went too

You were so
Brave
All alone
I see you now
My new shadow
