Love Is a Train Wreck This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Love is a train wreck,
wasting time and lives.
Carnage on the tracks.
Brace yourself for
emotional malfunction.
Loose screws,
tension tightens
until it breaks like a
fork in the track.
Love:
people board and exit.
Betrayed,
you derail to your
final destination.
