They say after heartbreak, a haircut
A clean slate for every mistake
But now I’ve no hair left for cutting
And even less heart left to break

i would say its about love and her giving her all but yet the person dont love her back so she/he (idont really know if this is a guy or girl)  tries and tries again but yet dont get no love back so she gives her heart out little by little like a hair cut till she dont have nothing left

I love how you say it so simply with subtle rhyme. it sounds smooth and graceful, not as if you are trying to pathetically rhyme it. I enjoyed it! Keep up the good work!

Hey one of my poems have been selected for the magazine in teenink. I saw that you have been published as well in the magazine. Do you know how long it usually takes them to send me a conributors copy with my piece published in it? I am waiting for it in the mail.

I actually don't remember - it's been a while since it happened, sadly. But I don't remember it taking too long - a couple weeks at most. How long has it been since they told you they were going to publish it?
