Color Me Perfect This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


warmfeet scrunched together
in the comfort of static cling
snoring purringcalling
running falling
I smooth each nightmare
from yourbrow
kissing every childhood scar
your history impressed
telling like abedtime story
I crave each imperfection
because when I sleep
I seeyou
eating caramel on your sundae
just a boy with calloused hands
palmto palm
with my nervous fingers
and in my dreams
you link my shakingpinkies
color me perfect
while I tell you that you're beautiful
