Is It You? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   i walk next to you

hoping and waiting

for your hand

to close around mine

but it never does

is it you?

i sit close to you

talking and believing

that you are listening

i wait

but you don't respond

is it you?

i stand beside you

wanting and wishing

for your arms

to hold me in your warm embrace

but they never do

is it you?

i now face you

needing and trying

to make you understand

that i love you

but this you cannot see

is it you?

or is it me?
