Tell me I was almost This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Lieto me
give me something
to console me
trick me into trying
call merunner up
and not last at all.
Tell me I was
Almost
worthhaving
That I'm almost
more than she.
Hold me
in a blanket
offalse security
for a moment
of peaceful sleep ...
Lies?
Far better alie
than a truth
that kills.
