Name Definition Pain This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I felt poetic so I went to write something down
Your name is all that wanted to come out
So what do I do now?
Sit here and wait
Wait for the day that I may forget your face
But I spent years at this task
And it seems you've become
A unerasable past
So I'll sip on this and unmask
My true feelings
Praying they won't last
Because the pain can be compared to shards of glass
Tearing into the soul that has no name
Roaming his world
Searching for a body to call home
But this is all just the same
As spelling out your name
