Words for You This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Sweet words swell
My melting heart.
In my boiling blood,
Trapped.
Escaping
Who I am
Only in salty tears,
Landing
In mypuddle of insecurities.

Sweet words fall
Softly from your burning wetlips,
Your clouded mind,
Landing
On my innocent ears.

You say Iam irresistible.
Beautiful -
(Perhaps)

I am intoxicated
(bythe sparkle)
As your light
Evaporates my puddle,
But do you know youlie
When you say
I love you
