Answer Me When This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

When did these arms
intricate, glass castle arms that
could be the subtle warmth in the
dark-water lake of a heart as the
light bounces from one pane
to the next,
become what they are?
Cold stranger arms, icy boulders
in the wake of a smile that isn't real.
When did I become the foreigner?
When did I become the alien,
undoing the strings that made our
bed together?
