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

By
     On my hand
In messy pen
I wrote “Forever”
And I longed for it to be true
But hoping for forever
Is singing a broken lullaby
And every day I tried so hard
To stay on key with the horrible tune
Until there was no one to listen
And forever was just a jumble of vacant letters
That held no meaning at all
Until forever faded into never
