It’s Truly Only When You’re Gone, My Love This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Forgive me but these inadequacies are solely my own
These cracks in my foundation are but those I have chiseled for my own entertainment
Seeing what felt good
What hurt
What hurt other

Love me for my warm embrace or please don’t love me at all
For every winter snow will fall
Someone else will hold my hands
Keep my heart whole
In this terrible, heartbreaking,
and misshapen world
