I Dream This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I dream in gray,
(No technicolor hues)
100 shades of mottled gray.
As I sleep
Each thought made of pencil smudges,
Unformed, hums through synapses
Colliding with memories:
Ink-stains.

I dream in gray,
(No black and white)
1,000 shades of interlacing gray.
As I sleep,
The image on the screen
Beats with fragile balance
A paper heart, pounding:
Life.

I dream in gray,
(No watercolor splashes)
10,000 shades of breathtaking gray.
As I cease to sleep,
The sky illuminates,
Layers of slate-colored clouds
Invite the day:
Dawn
