Untitled Soul This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

scream soft
smile bright
blind yourself with loving light
bask and sway for one more day
to hold the scream in tight

blooming flowers
choking weeds
blind the world with loving deeds
be the sun once day's begun
but hide the growing needs

blissful day
haunting night
try your best to win the fight
you think at dawn the hurt is gone
but still it waits to bite

I loved the fluidity of it! Most poems have at least some awkward transitions, but yours were beautiful! Nice job;)
