Papa, Remember Your Mia This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Papa, as you sit and your eyes do not see me,
Do you remember when you chased me through green grass?
So thick it tickled our feet
I ask you who I am
And when you answer Yolaine
I cry
Yolaine is gone
And you are gone
Papa, do you remember
When you taught me how to ride a bicycle
And I fell and cried?
Papa, say something
Smile
Anything
I ask you again who I am
And you say.
Daisy
Daisy is gone
I am gone
Everyone is gone
In your mind
Papa, do you remember your Mia?

wow... this makes me want to cry and NOTHING makes me cry. the emotion in this is amazing, you paint a ridiculously vivid image in my mind. The most impressive thing is, though, you don't spoon-feed me the picture, the emotion, the scene. you let me experience it in my way, and this is the thing that shows the most promise in your work.

this is being added to my favorites.
