as i walk you drag This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


as i walk
you drag
you are
grasped onto my
ankles
whendust is rising
i wonder why you simply
won't let go
you must feel it isyour only
place
to
be
i can't remember howthis
came
to
be
but
- suddenly -
you had fallen
& withchildish cleverness
(blindly) found
security with me
in yourhold

sometimes it hurts me,

like you're clawing at my calves
anddigging through my bones
