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

Last night I cried myself to sleep
Why
Because the person I care about left
Every night you say good night
Last night no one told me that
In the mornings you wake me up but you ­didn't today
When you do this to us, you come home ­before I wake up
But today you didn't
I went to school without a hug
Your youngest son asked where you were when he woke up
It killed me to lie to him
Telling him you sleep over at a friend's house
Knowing what I want to say is
She's getting high right now
But I couldn't tell him that he too young to ­understand
Today you killed me
