Watercolor Puddles This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


We sit in silence.
You bleed your heart until
your scarletsorrow spills
into my open hands.
Your eyes, green watercolorpuddles,
leave salt-stained cheeks.
Strands of tinylights
Blur between my lashes.
I tuck a curl behind your ear,cradle
your fingers in mine, trace
rose petal nails
with myfingertips
as if to protect
the only part of you I can.

Ihave asked for much,
but prayed only for you.
