Trapped in a Net of Black Lace This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


I'mrolling in circles on the frozen ground
Looking at a twilight-encrustedsky
Brimming with black lace
I'm trapped under its canopy and
No matterhow high I climb I can't get out
Every crevice is brimming with shadow
Andit gets darker all the time
All the world is black and blue
From thisfrozen earth
And running only stretches out the tenebrous evening
I'mafraid I won't be able to sleep tonight
And I'm worried that the sky willnever
Release its tears
And freeze in the winter air
Softening myresting area
Before it melts to summer
And all I see is green andpink
